Easy Vegan Pear Pie (gluten-free)

This Vegan Pear Pie is made with a buttery crust that promises to satisfy your comfort food cravings. The filling is fragrant, not overly sweet and is made with fresh pears. It is a perfect alternative to traditional apple pie if you want something different.

I can’t remember what the first pie I made was- either it was pear or pumpkin pie. I am leaning towards pear pie because I can just picture the old plastic laundry baskets that my mom and dad would fill with pears that have fallen off from our pear trees, usually from a very wind day. They are usually the imperfect ones with bumps from having fallen off the tree to the concrete ground.

When you walk towards the front of the house during the fall, there are usually 3-4 large laundry baskets of pears that line the wall of our front door. If they are ripe, the sweetness of the pears will fill the air around us. Other than dehydrating the pears, I would try to bake with them as often as I can so pear desserts are often seen in our house from bread to cakes and pies. I remember the joy I felt when I was able to make the crust for a pie, always thinking it was more complicated than it would be. My next favorite part is making the crust top, wondering what I should design it as or leave it plain. I usually choose the latter because of being impatient and a little lazy.

My mom would let me have the kitchen during the weekend if she was not making anything. I would grab a basket of pears, peeling and slicing them to make the pie. It was such a relieving feeling being able to use up a bunch of pears and knowing they would not be wasted. I am allergic to apples so apple pie is not seen in our house, but this pear pie is so tasty that it can serve as a substitution for traditional apple pie.
