Pears bake up beautifully, especially when sugared and spiced as they are in this yummy pie that 's made just like an apple pie. The pear slices are tossed in sugar, a bit of flour, cinnamon and ginger. The luscious pears are then piled into a pastry crust, sprinkled with lemon juice and topped with a second crust.
This recipe produces a really moist fruit cake it was given to me by my mom, and it's really easy. My mom uses it for Christmas cake by icing it. I use it for birthdays, Christmas, or just for a treat. Originally submitted to CakeRecipe.com.
