Star Pear Pie

A beautiful Pear Pie topped with stars and perfect for beginner pie makers. It tasted wonderful and pear pie has become a family favourite now.

Cold nights mean pie for pudding! It’s such a versatile dish to make and has thousands of possible fillings.  If the oven is going for dinner I love putting in a quick pie to cook for pudding.I tend to use premade shortcrust pastry from the supermarket as it saves time but on occasion I make it from scratch.

I loved how the stars looked after their bake. Plus the blueberries had burst making the filling a beautiful purple when it was served.
