This was a recipe in the Acton Fall Fair baking category. Very nice and light, love the delicate pear flavour. And I was very proud when mine took 1st place in the category, woot!
- Prepare pastry for one 9" unbaked pie shell.
- Combine pears, lemon juice, sugar, and tapioca. Mix all together and turn into pastry-lined pie plate.
- Prepare topping by combining flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle crumbs on top of pear mixture.
- Bake at 400F for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350F and bake until nicely browned, about 40-50 minutes more.
You deserved to win! This was a very delicious pie - we served it with ice cream! Made for PAC Spring 2014.
