Mom's French Pear Pie

This pie gets my vote for being both elegant and unique! Recipe from Nancy Miller...
Picture (above) is before pie was baked. The finished pie should be golden brown. Yum!

Mom's Pie Crust (click here for recipe)

     4-5 (somewhat firm) pears, peeled sliced
     3 Tbs. frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed

Drizzle orange juice concentrate over sliced pears in a bowl.  Pile pears into a non-baked pie crust. Sprinkle with topping.

     1 1/2 cup sugar
     1/3 cup butter, softened 
     3/4 cup flour
     pinch salt

I use a crust shield or wrap a thin band of tin foil around the exposed edge of the crust to prevent burning. Bake at 400° F. for 38-40 minutes, or until crust and topping are slightly browned. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
