Fresh Pear Crumble Pie
By Bobi Brouse Bertling
I love pie, especially fruit pie. But cream pies are great too. This recipe combines both. It has a really creamy texture with the added crunch of crumble topping. It's the best of both worlds. Give it a try. Enjoy.

Pie Crust, homemade or pre-made (unbaked)
1 cup sour cream
1 TBSP flour
½ tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pie crust into pie pan, prick the bottom with a fork. Crimp edges.
In a medium bowl, mix all the filling ingredients except pears. Pour into unbaked crust. Peel, core, and slice the pears. Spread evenly over the top of the pie filling. (The design won’t matter, it will be covered with the crumb topping).
Bake for 15 minutes and remove from oven. While baking prepare the crumb topping.

1/3 cup sugar
¼ cup butter
½ tsp cinnamon

Crumb Topping Directions
