An easy dessert originally from Joanna Lund that I changed just a little.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain pears, reserving liquid, and coarsely chop. Toss into pie crust.
  2. Add enough water to pear juice to equal 1 cup liquid. Combine pudding mix and dry milk powder, stir in the juice and mix well. Stir in the extract, jam and 1/4 cup cool whip. Spread over the pears.
  3. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Top with remaining cool whip. Can sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs over top if you like.

This should really be 3 1/2 stars. I think it needs a little more liquid or a little less powdered milk, I could really taste the powdered milk. Other than that, this was a great, simple dessert.
