Ingredients For An Upside Down Pie Recipe

  • Equipment: Non Stick Baking "Tin"
  • Shortcrust pastry
  • Knobs of butter
  • Pears
  • Brown Sugar
  • Golden Syrup

The first step for this pie recipe is to drizzle golden syrup into the base of the baking "tin" and sprinkle over with sugar. Place slices of pear attractively. This will become the top of the pie.

To create a thicker pie crust, I recommend using two sheets of pastry. Dot butter on one sheet and top with the other sheet. Roll together to bind both the sheets together.

Cut out a circle using the baking "tin" as a template.

Press the sheets firmly over the layer of pears, using your fingers to mold the fruit into the pie crust.

Here it is...A beautifully baked pie crust bottom!

Place a plate over the baking "tin" and upturn it, so that the crust now sits on the plate and the pears are facing upwards. Take care to drain away the excess fluid before flipping it over.

Save the juice for use later in your cooking.

Here is the easy pie recipe, whipped up in under 30 minutes.

Tips For Easy Recipes

Use non-stick silicone bake ware to minimize work. This is so you don't have to line and grease your baking tins. Every little bit of fat you don't consume is all the better for you.

If you're not using silicone bake ware, before you start the process, please line and grease the tin.

You may substitute with any fruit in season. An apple or peach upside down pie is similarly sensational.
