Pear Pie is a Cajun’s all-time favorite.


  • First Mixture
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp mace or nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup flour or 1/4 c flour and 1/4 c graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 6 or 7 average pears
  • 1 unbaked pie crust - 9 inch


Step 1

Peel and thinly slice the pears and place in an uncooked pie shell. In a bowl, mix the sugar, salt, cornstarch, and lemon juice from the first mixture and pour over the pears in the pie shell.

Step 2

For the topping, if using graham crackers crumbs, place 3 crackers in Ziploc bag; pulverize to meal with rolling pin. In a bowl mix the ingredients from the second mixture with your hands.

Step 3

Combine well and pat on top of the pie to form a crust.

Optimal: brush egg white on the shell before filling.

Step 4

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 45 more minutes or until golden brown and juice bubbles through the top. Serve alone or with ice cream or top with whipped cream.
