Ingredients

  • 1/2 box (1 crust) Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 ripe large pear, peeled, cored, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 can (540 mL) cherry pie filling
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds, toasted*

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Line large baking sheet with cooking parchment paper. Unroll pie crust onto baking sheet.
  • 2
    In small bowl, stir together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. In medium bowl, stir cornstarch mixture and remaining filling ingredients. Spoon filling mixture onto centre of crust within 2 inches of edge. Carefully fold 2-inch edge of crust over filling, pleating crust slightly as necessary.
  • 3
    In small bowl, beat egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush over edge of crust. Sprinkle sugar over crust edge.
  • 4
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until pears are tender and crust is golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Cut into wedges; serve warm. Cover and refrigerate any remaining tart.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    *To toast almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  • Tip 2
    Serve with whipped topping or a scoop of your favourite ice cream.
  • Tip 3
    Because this recipe calls for a ripe pear, it requires a bit of planning. Store-bought pears may take up to 1 week to ripen.
