Pears are an excellent source of fiber and a good source of vitamin C! They taste great too and are sodium free and fat free! You know how much I love making sweet treats for friends and family, so if that means adding a bit of sugar and butter, I’m going to also add some nutrients.. in this case.. PEARS! Who wouldn’t want a slice of a pear tart?

First! Peel the skin off the pear ( I always end up eating the skin as I peel away, giving myself some extra amounts of fiber). You want to slice the pear in half (long way) and then continue slicing a little less than 1/2 inch thick.
Place the sliced pear into the pie and try to place the slices all going in the same direction, starting from the outside of the pie, circling inward. I cut a little remainder of the pear into a heart and placed it in the middle of the pie. Just a little something extra 🙂
Mix altogether until you get a thick liquid consistency
Pour mixture on top of pie and place in preheated oven. Don’t be alarmed if the mixture begins to bubble. Just keep an eye on your crust so it doesn’t burn.
Bake for 45 -60 minutes until pie is crispy. NOTE! Keep an eye on your crust so it doesn’t burn on the edges (you may want to place foil again on crust so the mixture bakes and the crust doesn’t burn).Thought I would add one more photo! Enjoy! Sweet, delicious and refreshing.. all in one 🙂
