i am sooo hoping this may be a day of blessing and EnJOYment for you :)
thank you for visiting !...

Maple Pear Pies:

5 pears, peeled, cored, and chopped
2/3 cup pure maple syrup
2 T. arrowroot powder, corn starch, or flour
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
2 T. unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces

4-6 sheets phyllo dough
4 T. unsalted butter, melted
vanilla sugar (or cinnamon sugar)

Preheat the oven to 425. Combine all the pie filling ingredients except the butter in a large bowl. Divide amongst 8 ramekins, topping each with a piece of butter. Bake until bubbly, about 20 minutes.

To make the crust, roll out phyllo dough brushing melted butter between each layer, and occasionally sprinkling vanilla sugar in between the layers. Continue this process until the phyllo dough is four to six sheet thick. Cut into rounds the same size as your ramekins, and place on top of the bubbling fruit.

Continue to bake for about 12-14 minutes, or until the phyllo has turned golden-brown. Serve warm.

PLEASE EnJoy the blog hop at the following,
beginning with my friend Amy, our host ~

Thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful recipe. I love baked pears in the winter but have never tried them with the pastry on the top .... hmmmm, I will have to now!

furrypig said...

that sounds so scrummy and full of seasonal goodness! May I ask are you in Canada? (I associate Maple Syrup with Canada maybe incorrectly) it has such a great taste would love to live somewhere that they actually made it!

Love the name of your blog! I'm guessing there has to be some connection to Canada here from the beautiful picture of those jars of maple syrup. Although I've used it with apples, I've never thought to try it with pears, but this sounds delicious!
