15May2018Amish Pear Pie Jump to Recipe Print Recipe This classic Pear Pie comes together so quick and easy! Fresh picked, juicy pears seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg, with a butter and brown sugar crumble on top! I mentioned in one of my most recent posts that we recently moved back to Lancaster County, PA – the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. I didn’t grow up here and neither did Paul. We both were born in Philadelphia and lived in and around the city and didn’t move out here to Central PA until Silas was about 3 months old. I have to say, it didn’t take us long to get used to living here with all this delicious food!Pear Pie ShortcutMaking a delicious pear pie straight from an Amish cookbook doesn’t have to be hard! I love using refrigerated flaky pie crusts to cut the preparation time. That way I don’t have to bother with flouring and rolling out the dough evenly – just leave the premade crust on the counter for a few minutes to soften and become pliable. Your pear pie will be ready in minutes!Amish Pear PieI think it’s only fitting to share another amazing Amish recipe that I’ve come across since living here. I’ve made this amazing fresh pear pie dessert several times, and I’ve made my own tweaks to make it just how we like it. You may recognize the crumb topping recipe… it’s the same as in my Pastor’s Wife Apple Pie! You just can’t go wrong with that crumb topping, I’m telling you!
