i wanted a pie but i had nothing but pears left in my fruit bowl


  1. Roll out half of your short crust pastry block.
  2. Smooth the rolled out pastry into the pie dish.
  3. Cut and prepare the pears into medium sized round circles.
  4. Pour 1/4 cups of water into a pot then add the pears into the pot.
  5. Pour all the sugar on top of the pears then add the whole cinnamon stick and the nutmeg.
  6. Let the pears simmer, so the pears caramelize.
  7. Pour most of the syrup into a cup.
  8. Roll out 1/4 peices of the pastry block and cut 6 peices the size of the sandwich tin.
  9. Pour the pears onto the sandwich dish full of pastry.
