A Slice of Heaven for Thanksgiving: Fresh Pear Pie with River Stone Reflections Fortified Wine

Thanksgiving is a time for family, gratitude, and of course, delicious food. While we all look forward to the classic turkey and stuffing, it's the dessert that often steals the show. This year, why not add a twist to your traditional Thanksgiving menu with a mouthwatering Custard Pear Pie? Paired with the velvety smooth Reflections fortified wine, this recipe will elevate your holiday dinner to a whole new level of bliss.

Custard Pear Pie

Thanksgiving isn't complete without pie, and if you're looking to break away from the usual pumpkin or apple, Custard Pear Pie is a fantastic option that also happens to be an old family recipe! Pears bring a unique and delicate flavor to the dessert table, making this pie an instant crowd-pleaser. Plus, it's super easy to make and takes no time at all.

  • 2 ripe pears, halved and cored (leave skins on)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Standard frozen pie crust
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter, eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  • Add the flour to the mixture and continue to whisk until you have a smooth batter.
  • Place the pear halves, cut side down, into a pie dish.
  • Pour the custard mixture over the pears, ensuring they are evenly covered.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 40-45 minutes or until the custard is set and has a golden brown top.

You can check for doneness by carefully inserting a toothpick into the custard; it should come out clean when done. Once done, remove the pie from the oven and let it cool to room temperature. Serve with fresh whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream and a glass of Reflections. Enjoy!
