When you have organic pear's that need to be used I tend to make pear sauce. I then end up with a lot of pear sauce canned or in the freezer.
I stumbled across a recipe for applesauce pie and thought, "Why not?" Made a few tweaks to make it "Abby safe" and we all agree this is a keeper!
2 cups homemade pear sauce(I tend to drain mine and make it thicker and I sweeten)
1 cup C&H organic sugar
1/2 cup Tropical Traditions coconut oil
1 teaspoon homemade vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground ginger(we have been buying Simply Organic or Frontier for some of her spices and herbs)
1/2 teaspoon ground clove(feel free to add whatever spice you like, ginger and clove are Abby's safe spices so we stick to them)
1 unbaked gluten free pie crust(Tropical Traditions shortening, gf all purpose flour blend, salt, a bit of sugar, 1 egg,some water and roll between 2 sheets of parchment)
Preheat oven 425
1) soften coconut oil
2) Make pie crust and chill
3) In bowl combine coconut oil, eggs and sugar. Then add pear sauce,vanilla and spices. Blend well.
4) pour into chilled crust.
5) bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 30-40 minutes. Very much like baking pumpkin pie, you want to make sure it has set through to the center. You may want to cover your crust halfway through if browning too quickly.
