Sunday Supper Suggestion, Pear Creme Pie

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper, one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestions, and hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!

There are no rules for what is appropriate to serve for Sunday Dinner, it can be as fancy as you like or as frugal as you need! What makes Sunday Dinner special is who you get to dine with...

We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

Pear Creme Pie, with a whole wheat crust (also dairy free).
Pear Creme Pie
This pie is delicious! I have taken the liberty to give it a slight rename, from Pear Pie to Pear Creme Pie. It does not have any cream, but like many pies from years ago in frugal times, sugar and eggs formed a creamy filling when combined with fruit. And this pie is no exception.

The pie is enhanced with a whole wheat pie crust, which gives the rich (but not too sweet) filling a crunchy, and nutty contrast in taste. You may add a bit of whipped cream or ice cream if you like, but this pie is also wonderful, plain.

Pear Creme Pie.

It is suggested that you use Bosc pears, when I went to the market there were beautiful Bartlett pears, and that is what went into this pie. Something tells me that any ripe pear could be used for this pie, and probably has, through the years.

I had never heard of Pear Pie, but I am very glad I found this recipe.
