Hear are two simple questions to assess if you will have the skills to make this amazing dessert:
1) Can you slice fruit?
2) Do you own a blender and can you successfully operate it?
If you said yes to both, then you can totally make this delicate pear dessert that looks like it came from a gourmet pastry shop. I completely heart this recipe because it does NOT involved making pie crust. Let me say that again- no pie crust.
So here is the link to the full recipe but below is the step-by-step:
1) Peel and slice pears into thin ( ~1/4") slices and lay them in a buttered pie pan overlapping in a fan like pattern. This doesn't have to be perfect.
2) Dump the rest of the ingredients: flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla, melted butter, salt, milk, into the blender and blend until mixed.
3) Pour the blended mix ( this is the custard) over the pears and bake in the oven.
And that's it. The custard sets and forms a firm enough base to be both filling and crust and the pear pattern can be seen just enough to give it that gourmet appearance.
Dust the pie with a bit of powdered sugar and you will wow your roommates/ spouse/ friends/ family with this.
So, please, make this pie and post a comment telling us how it went. We fell in love with the flavors of pear and vanilla and the lovely texture, can you tell?
