Pear Pie with Rum, Orange, and Almond

Pear Pie with Orange, Almond, and Rum

This isn’t any ordinary pear pie: Ryan flavoured it with rum, almond, and orange.

Ryan invented this pie; he adapted his usual apple pie recipe so he could use pears instead. He then added a shot of rum, some almond extract, and a sprinkle of grated orange zest. Ryan likes to add some liquor to his baking, such as whiskey to regular blondies, but this pear pie was calling for tropical rum!

Even our dad, who hates pears, thought this pear pie was amazing. To kick it up a notch, Ryan coated the sliced pears (which we didn’t bother to peel) with a flavoured caramel sauce, and then he poured the whole thing into the crust.
