Then, today, I noticed these pears that were getting past their prime...
...So I decided that I had no other option but to try out that new pan! It simply had to be done.
Yeah. That's my excuse. The pears. They had to be used. Now.
I modified the Pine Grove Grange Famous Pear Pie recipe that my Mom has posted before. It's always been a family favorite.
We didn't even save it for dessert. It was a snack. A yummy snack. All the more lovely for the pan it was baked in.
