Looking for a delicious, simple, healthy dessert? Look no further! This Pear Custard Pie is perfect – fruity, eggy custardy, deliciousness. I have to keep myself from eating the entire thing every time I make it! Feel free to swap out the pears for apples if preferred. Enjoy!
Pear custard pie
- 3 pears unripe work best, halved and sliced ¼ inch thin
- ¼ cup maple sugar
- 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 eggs
- ¾ cup whole milk
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ cup melted unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a pie dish or round tart pan with olive oil cooking spray.
Arrange pear slices, overlapping slightly, around the pie dish. Two circles should be adequate.
Place maple sugar, flour, vanilla, eggs, milk, and salt in a blender and process until smooth. Slowly add melted butter while blending. Pour batter over pears in the dish.
Bake until golden brown, ~40-45 minutes. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, crème fraiche, or plain greek yogurt.
