DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare crust by creaming butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla, flour and almonds.
  • Press crust into 8x8 square pan (I use glass).
  • Pierce crust all over with fork and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile prepare filling by beating cream cheese until lumps are removed and add sugar.
  • Continue to beat for about 1 minute and then add egg and vanilla.
  • Beat until well combined.
  • Spread filling over crust.
  • Thinly slice drained pears lengthwise and arrange over cream cheese, slightly overlapping each slice in neat rows.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon sugar topping over the top.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling has puffed up a little bit and almost set.
  • Cool completely and refrigerate until cold (at least 3 hours, overnight is recommended).
  • Slice into squares to serve.
