- pastry for 1-crust pie
- 2-3 peeled, sliced fresh pears
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoon flour
- 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/16 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 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 230° 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.
