Crystallized ginger pairs well with thinly sliced unpeeled pears. The crisp and crunchy sweet crust results from brushing the top pastry with water or milk and then sprinkling it with sugar, which gives the perfect pie shop look!

Ingredients

Crust

1
box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box

Filling

3/4
cup sugar
2
tablespoons cornstarch
3
tablespoons chopped crystallized ginger
6
cups thinly sliced pears (about 6 medium)

Topping

1
tablespoon water
4
teaspoons sugar

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using 9-inch glass pie pan.
