‘Lazy Girl’ Spiced Pear Pie

'Lazy Girl' Spiced Pear Pastry - from Canned-Time.com Sometimes, the simplest ingredients make up the best recipes.  This pear pie is definitely simple.  And definitely delicious.  I recently discovered a wonderful blog,      Vegan 8.  This site takes simple and delicious to a new level.  Check it out.

So my ‘lazy girl’ spiced pear pie is just that, simple, easy, fresh, healthy and yummy.  Pick your favorite fresh fruit, add a little spice, some filo dough for crust.  Bake.  Devour!

 Make sure you use fruit that is just ripe or slightly over ripe.  

You’ll need much less processed sugars when the fruit provides your flavors by itself and wont need added sweetness.'Lazy Girl' Spiced Pear Pastry - from Canned-Time.com

"Lazy Girl" Spiced Pear Pie
Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 prepared Filo dough, slightly thawed
  2. 4 ripe pears, cored and sliced thinly
  3. 8 oz. non dairy cream cheese
  4. 1 Tbs cinnamon
  5. 1 tsp ground cloves
  6. 2 Tbs Vanilla
  7. 1/2 cup Organic cane sugar
  8. Vegan butter for basting (about 1/2 cup melted)
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, combine cream cheese, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and 1 of the sliced pears. Blend until smooth.
  2. Lay out the filo dough onto a greased pie plate or tart pan. Baste the filo with a light coating of butter. Bake the filo at 300 for about 10 minutes until it is just barely browning. Pour the cream mixture onto the filo and spread to fill the bottom of your plate. Sprinkle the cream with a little of your cane sugar. Arrange the remaining sliced pears on top of the cream layer. Sprinkle the remaining cane sugar on top of the sliced pears. Baste the filo crust edges again and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the tops of the fruit are browned. Watch to see if your filo edges need another basting of butter after about 20 minutes so that they down burn. Serve with ice cream or just by it's simple self 😉

    Aww thanks for the shoutout Angela! I truly appreciate that. 🙂 When I saw this post come across my email, the very reason you mentioned is why it caught my eye ….” Lazy” hence “easy “. I love how delicious and easy it is… I’m a huge lover of cooked apples….so I would love to make this as an apple pie. I make an apple pecan crisp too, but this one is different…my hubby would love this one! Yum and gorgeous!

      Hey it’s not easy keeping recipes to 8 ingredients I found. But this one turned out just right…I guess the ice cream would be a 9th technically 😉
      Really simple though. I got a new toaster oven for Christmas that was perfect for cooking this one up in a flash.
      Apple pecans sound perfect too. I tend to eat my pecans raw before I can get them into a recipe but I LOVE apple crisp so I’ll have to try harder. Pecans are my favorite nuts.
      Sent you an email last week but I’m not sure it got to you. Let me know.
      Thanks for your inspiration on this one too!!
      Happy New Year.

        Yes, you are right! I test and retest my recipes to get them at 8 ingredients … Sometimes easy, sometimes not…but I keep at it! Oh and ice cream is a whole different recipe from the pie! 🙂
        Oh no, I didn’t get an email! I’ll check my spam box and let you know…thanks again! 🙂

      Pears and Granny Smith Apples are mine too. We got a basket of pears for Christmas that were definitely almost past their prime so they worked well for this. Just mushy enough to be sweet but firm enough to slice up.
      You’ll have to tell us all about your Nacho fest this week in your posting. I’ve been dreaming of that mound of spicy crunch you created:)

        I couldn’t eat all of them! I had a mountain (a whole bag) of delicious Mission corn chips smothered in homemade tomato, mushroom, kalamata olive and artichoke sauce with more artichokes, sour cream etc. and my mountain made me SO happy (and SO full!). I spent the afternoon eating boxes of delicious Christmas mochi that my wonderful daughters bought for me whilst watching movies and by Christmas evening I was so full I couldn’t move. I had lots of good intentions but Christmas nacho’s and Christmas mochi were too much for me to ignore. I just learned about chocolate covered marzipan…did you know about it? Am I the only one in the world that doesn’t know about chocolate covered marzipan?!!! I am going to make myself some vegan marzipan and slather it in delicious dark vegan chocolate. A large wodge of it all for me (Steve hates it) :). I feel another eating event coming on…

          You’re probably just getting up so ‘HAPPY NEW YEAR’ WOMAN!
          And as for your food fest….as hard as you’re working in that gorgeous garden, it shouldn’t be a problem indulging once in a while.
          Chips fill me up pretty quickly though so I can relate!

            Happy New Year right back atcha Angela and here’s to lots of great intercontinental relations… I reckon we bloggers should be given the job of working out our nations problems…easy peasy methinks 😉
