The autumn weather is upon us here in central Europe and with the the season for sniffles and sore throats. It has been a long time since I had a real cold, but I have one now. No fear, however, you won’t catch it by reading my words here.
A few weeks ago we had some more beautiful pears and I remembered a recipe that was given to me some time ago. I was curious about it because it is exceptionally simple and quick, but I had been assured that the results were worth making it, so I set to peeling and cutting the pears in half, removing the core and preparing a pie plate with a crust made from pie dough I had in the refrigerator.
It only takes a lower crust, the pear halves get spread on the bottom and a custard is poured over the pears before baking. Voilá! The results are wonderful. For instructions see the recipe archive.
