Kathy's Peerless Pear Pie
A caramelized nut topping glazes the top of this spiced Asian pear pie. Use the 9-inch pie pastry (double the recipe), or buy a refrigerated pastry (15-oz. package; use at room temperature). Follow steps 4 and 5 of pastry recipe to roll half the dough for bottom crust and to line pan (don't fold or flute edge). If making pie up to 1 day ahead, cover and chill. To warm cold pie, bake uncovered in a 350° oven 10 to 15 minutes.
