Description: In just minutes you can have a fresh from the oven, warm, homestyle Pear Pie. Simply pop it in the oven and let the smell of sweet pears get the whole family excited.

Once it's ready, pull it out of the oven. Cut a nice thick slice, add a big scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream and watch it slowly melt over the pie. The shortbread cookie pie crust is sweet, buttery and flakey. The locally-grown pear filling is sweet and delicious with a touch of lemon juice to make the flavous pop. And the slightly crunchy crumble topping adds a wonderful contrast of textures that delights with every bite. This is a simple, yet elegant pear pie that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home with minimal mess or clean up.

About Our Bake-At Home Pear Pie with Crumble Topping

For this pie we started with a sweet and buttery shortbread cookie crust made with our freshly milled Red Fife flour. The Red Fife flour adds a nice nutty flavour.

For the filling we used fresh pears from Sunny Spot Farm which is a small family run orchard in Bonnington. We then added organic sugar and organic tapioca powder to thicken it. To finish it off we added a layer of crumble topping made with Soft White flour, butter, sugar and salt.


Each pie is 9 inches and comes frozen

The pies are frozen so let them thaw on the counter for about 2 hours before baking. Scroll to the bottom for baking instructions.
