Asian pear tree is loaded again and you can't possibly eat them all one at a time right? SO, MAKE PIE! It's that time of year and we can't just let them fall off the tree and rot!  This time I am using a frozen pie crust with a crumb topping.  And it's oh so good!


  • 5-6 cups of ripe peeled and sliced Asian pears (mine are little so it took about 20!)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Crumb Topping Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Crumb Topping Directions:

  1. In a bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup light-brown sugar, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and cinnamon.
  2. Cut 1 1/2 sticks chilled unsalted butter into small pieces. With your hands, work in butter pieces, until large clumps form.
  3. Freeze leftover mixture in plastic storage bags.
Pie Directions:
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Place 1 frozen pie crust in the oven and bake 6 minutes and remove from oven and let cool a few minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, gently mix all the filling ingredients and spoon into your pie crust.
  4. Top with crumb mixture (About 1 to 1 1/2 cups)
  5. Cover with foil (a sheet laid over the top) and bake 40 minutes. The foil just keeps your crumbs from burning.
  6. Take the foil off and bake about 5 more minutes to let the crumbs brown.
  7. Cool on a cooling rack for at least 2 hours before serving.
NOTE: You will have extra crumbs that you can freeze and use later as a topping for ice cream or another pie :)  Just toast the crumb topping on a baking sheet in a 350-degree oven for approximately15 minutes, and sprinkle over ice cream or fruit.
