Caramel Vanilla Pear Pie is the only thing you need around your table this holiday season! This pie has sweet baked pears swimming in a homemade caramel sauce with a subtle hint of vanilla. Not to mention the flaky gluten-free pie crust that is super easy to make! Top it off with a scoop of ice cream or enjoy on its own.
Pie season is here and I’m SO about it! When I think about pie, I think about holiday music, bringing people together, and all the joyful times with family and friends. To me, pie means family because we typically enjoy it around the holidays when we’re all together. It gives me all the warm & fuzzy feelings just thinking about it!
What we have going on here in this pie
- A super simple pie crust made with almond flour, tapioca flour and a few other pie crust essentials. It’s completely gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly too. I know, I didn’t think it was possible either. The combination of the coconut milk and the apple cider vinegar give the crust a little lift and provide some moisture so we get a sweet a heavenly golden brown crisp on the top.
- An absurdly decadent filling of fresh pears, homemade caramel sauce, and a subtle hint of vanilla from real vanilla beans (those are optional though). It may be the best pie filling I’ve ever had but I may be a tad bit biased.
- To top it all off, we drizzle any remaining sauce over top of the cooked pie so you get that caramel vanilla flavor in every bite!
This pie is by far one of my favorites because the flavors are out of this world. Caramel + vanilla + soft, flaky crust = an insanely delicious pie. Pears are subtly sweet with a little crisp which makes them the perfect simple canvas to start with so the other flavors can really shine through. If you prefer apples over pears, simply replace the 3 medium pears in the recipe with 3 medium apples. Easy as PIE!Print
