Photo and Recipe: Diana Rattray

This is a delicious pear pie recipe. It's made with fresh pears, a little lemon and cinnamon. The perfect dessert to make with your fresh pears. 


Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • pastry for 2-crust pie
  • 5 peeled, sliced fresh pears
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut in small pieces


Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Add the sliced pears. Combine sugar, flour, lemon peel, and seasonings; sprinkle over the pears. Drizzle with the lemon juice then dot with the butter. Make a lattice top; flute edges. Cover edge of pie with a strip of foil. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake about 10 minutes longer.

*To make a lattice top crust, cut rolled out dough into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Arrange 5 to 6 dough strips across top of filling. Form the lattice by arranging more dough strips at right angle to first set of dough strips, weaving the strips if you wish. Trim dough strips even with the overhang on bottom crust. Tuck ends of dough strips and overhang under; press to seal then crimp the edges.

Every bit as good as apple pie. We have a pear tree in the yard, and we never know what to do with all the pears. That won't be a problem ever again with this recipe.
