Today is lunch with your friends you only see once in a while and you want a “small” gift to show how much you care!
Your grandmother’s favorite GINGER PEAR PIE recipe in a vintage Ball jar with a coaster-size piece of French toweling or one with a hand-stitched border and a personalized tag is perfect!
- 1½ cups sugar
- 1 cup golden raisins
- ½ cup lemon juice
- ½ cup butter, cut into pieces
- 6 tbs. cornstarch
- ¼ cup crystallized ginger, finely chopped
- 30 oz. thinly sliced pears (or two 15 oz. cans Bartlett pear slices, drained)
- Prepared graham cracker crust
- Using cookie cutter, cut pie crust into circles that fit bottom of jar. Place each pie crust circle in jar bottoms.
- In medium saucepan, combine all ingredients except pears and crust.
- Bring mixture to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 2 minutes, until mixture is no longer cloudy.
- Remove from heat and stir in pears. Pour filling into jars over pie crust.
- Refrigerate until chilled. Top with whipped cream, serve.
You will want to label those adorable ginger pear in a jar recipes. You can make the pear shaped labels using:
- Sizzix BIGkick. (This machine works with the entire Sizzix library (except Bigz Pro dies) and cuts and embosses many different materials.)
