Pear butterscotch pie, from an old Gourmet magazine. I might be able to find a few folks to share this with! #pie #crust #makemyowncrust #doublecrustpie #latticepie #fruitpies #pear #butterscotch #homemade #eatdessertfirst #instafood #foodporn #instayum #foodoftheday #austin360cooks #instadessert #instapie #gourmetmagazine
The one note I left on my printout when I made it before was "yum!". Not very descriptive, but it was precisely that. Especially when served a bit warm with fresh whipped cream.
I think I can now add "Yum, YUM!" to my notes. It's a very easy pie to make, only made complicated by the crust. I made my own crust, because I am a pie-purist in that respect. I use Rose Levy Beranbaum's recipe, though I use half butter and half vegetable shortening. And I used Bartlett pears and fresh grated nutmeg, which I think always makes a difference. But if you are not a crust maker, the refrigerated pie crusts will certainly do, and you could do a lattice or other fun, fall-like motif. Do try to use the fresh nutmeg though!
And thanks to the Austin American-Statesman, who featured my Instagram photo in the newspaper, as part of their #austin360cooks hastags.
Enjoy! And meanwhile, I am still waiting for sweater weather........
