The best pear cheesecake pie!

 

 

I am not much of a pie person I must confess. Not because I don’t like it because I certainly do – it’s one of my favorite desserts! I especially love it served a la mode – anything with ice cream is always better, isn’t it? The truth is I don’t make a lot of pies because I get scared I’ll mess it up. It’s just one of those desserts that I truly feel intimidated, I don’t know why. That fear factor has certainly prevented me from trying to make pies.

 

Pear Pie

However, recently I realized that it’s totally silly to not make a yummy pie just because I find it daunting. After all I surely am missing a lot if I continue to not even try! When I learned I can make a cream cheese-based pie, then I decided to make this yummy pie dessert. If I can make cheesecake then perhaps I can make a cream cheese pie and yes, I did it with success!

 

I was totally elated when I made this very pretty pie and it turned out so good as well. I didn’t have a problem letting it set as cream cheese sets perfectly every time. Ok, so my crust is not from scratch but that’s my next challenge! In the meantime for those of you are scared to make pies – try this super-easy recipe – you’ll feel almost like a pro afterward and trust me everyone will love this!!!

    The cream cheese base with a pear topping and apricot sounds like a delicious combination! And, I think there's nothing wrong with using store-bought pie crust!

    You should definitely make pies more often. This looks amazing and I love the layers of flavor.

    I love the filling on this pie and could definitely see that it could easily be used with lots of different fruits – especially during the summer as berries come into season. I do hope you'll try homemade pie crusts. Mine don't always turn out, but when they do, they are awesome.

    I know how you feel. I finally got over my aversion of making pie crust. I was a huge endeavor for me. I am so glad you shared this pie, this looks so good.

    I have had other fruits on cheesecake, but never pears! This is such a good idea, pears and cheese go so well together. I use store bought crust too!
