Pear pie with Melina cream honey

Served warm with brie cheese, this rustic honey pear pie is a lovely departure from the more traditional apple pie during this Thanksgiving season.


Servings 4-6 
Preparation Time: 15 minutes 
Total Time: 35-40 minutes


Ingredients

  • Crust for 10-inch pie
  • 3 ripe pears, cored and sliced
  • 4 tablespoons Nature Nate’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey, plus additional 2 tablespoons for drizzle
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Brie cheese for serving

Directions:

Preheat oven to 190 C. Roll out single pie crust evenly in a large circle onto a parchment-lined large baking sheet or pie pan. In a bowl, gently toss pear slices, honey, cinnamon, flour and salt. Place coated pears in a circular pattern in the center of the crust, leaving an edge of about 4-inches onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Dot with the butter.

Fold the edges of the dough up into a circle, leaving an opening in the center of about 3-inches. Bake for 35-40 minutes until deep golden and bubbly. Cool slightly drizzle with remaining honey. Serve warm with Brie cheese.
