Pear Coconut Custard Pie

Crisp pears in a light coconut Custard make for a delightful fall dessert. It is easy to whip up, being prepared in 15 – 20 minutes. Bake time is 40 – 45 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 4 pears any type, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup of butter (may use dairy free or real)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup of coconut milk (from can)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Powder sugar for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Using cooking spray, coat the bottom and sides of a 9 inch round pan.
  2. Arrange pear slices in the pan.
  3. Place the following ingredients in the blender: butter, eggs, coconut milk, sugar, flour, salt and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
  4. Slowly pour the mixture over the pears. 
  5. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes until the pie is golden brown. 
  6. Optional: before serving you can dust it with powder sugar.

*This recipe only uses about half a can of coconut milk, so you can freeze the leftover coconut milk to make a pie later or to use in smoothies.🙂

If you are using hard pears and would prefer the pears be soft in the pie, you can put the pear slices in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Then drain before arranging them in the pan. The pears will be soft in the pie, however the custard will not be as firm.

Arrange pear slices before pouring the batter in the pan.
