    This is by Melissa Roberts from Gourmet September 2009. This makes a very yummy pie and is a nice change from apple.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6-8

    Yield:

    pie

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put a baking sheet on middle rack of oven and preheat oven to 425°F.
    2. 2
      Whisk together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt, then whisk in brown sugar, breaking up any lumps. Gently toss pears with brown sugar mixture, lemon juice, and vanilla and let stand 5 to 15 minutes to macerate fruit.
    3. 3
      Roll out 1 piece of dough (keep remaining disk chilled) on a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin into a 13-inch round. Fit into a 9-inch pie plate. Roll out remaining piece of dough into a 13-inch round. Reserve scraps.
    4. 4
      Transfer filling to shell. Dot with butter, then cover with pastry round. Trim edges, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang (reserve scraps). Press edges together to seal, then fold under. Lightly brush top crust with some of egg wash, then cut 3 (1-inch-long) vents.
    5. 5
      Roll out dough scraps about 1/8 inch thick and cut out leaf shapes with cutters (or a knife). Arrange decoratively on top of pie, pressing gently to help them adhere. Lightly brush top crust and cutouts with some of egg wash and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
    6. 6
      Bake pie on hot baking sheet 20 minutes. Reduce oven to 375°F and bake until crust is golden and filling is bubbling, 40 to 45 minutes more. Cool to warm or room temperature, 2 to 3 hours.

      I used Bartlett pears for this pie but didn't peel them, as we appreciate all the extra vitamins that the skin includes! Other than that, though, I followed the recipe right on down, & had one of the best tasting pies I've made in quite some time! Definitely a pie I'll make again! Thanks for posting the recipe!

      I cannot give stars as I only made the filling of pie and exchanged apples for pears but it was great and I followed ingredients for filling and can tell you it works out well - great with custard, would be fab in a pie and subbing the fruit caused no problems.
