Gluten Free Pear Custard Pie

apple picking
I went apple picking with my family last weekend, which was great! One minor issue though –  I don’t really care for apples…but, lucky me, they had a few pear trees sprinkled throughout the orchard. So I stocked up on pears and now I have more than I know what to do with. 1st recipe on this list… Pear custard pie.

This is a Martha Stewart recipe, with one little conversion switching to gluten free flour.
