Fresh Pear Pie with Dried Cherries and Brown Sugar Streusel from FC101

This pie has a somewhat unusual (to me at least) taste combination, pears and cherries.  The dried cherries plump up in the pear juices, helping thicken the pie.  The streusel on top is rich, sweet, and buttery.  This is a delicious pie, definitely worth making again.

I just responded to your comment on my gingerbread and didn't see your Pear Pie! I'm on a pear craving right now also, and am planning something with pears for the Daring Bakers' Challenge this month. Can't reveal what it is until 10/14, but you should check out this group - I think you would really enjoy it. Google "The Daring Kitchen" and you can become a Daring Cook or Daring Baker, or be insane like me and join both! Posted: 11:23 pm on October 7th
