1
box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
2

1
cup fresh cranberries
1/2
cup sugar
1/4
teaspoon nutmeg
1/2
cup sour cream
3
eggs

Sauce

1
teaspoon cornstarch
1
cup dairy eggnog
1
tablespoon light rum or 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Make pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell as directed on box using 9-inch glass pie plate. Prick crust generously with fork.
  • 2 Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Cool 5 minutes. Layer pear slices and cranberries in baked crust.
  • 3 In medium bowl, with wire whisk, beat sugar, nutmeg, sour cream and eggs until smooth and well blended. Pour evenly over fruit.
