Who doesn't love pie? This recipe for Pear-Ginger Pie with Crumb Topping is absolutely amazing. Made with fresh D'Anjou pears and ginger. Yum!
This is my version of a recipe I found in Food Network Magazine. I made a few changes, as usual, to make it simpler and add a little extra flavor.
- 9" unbaked pie shell
- Orange marmalade
- D'Anjou Pears
- Lemon zest and juice
- Fresh Ginger
I must admit that one of the ways I simplified this recipe was to use a store bought pie crust. They are easy to use and pretty good. If you want to make your own crust, you can try my recipe for Buttery Pie Crust.
To slice the pears, I used my handy, dandy mandoline kitchen slicer.
