Mmmm. A custard pie that melts on your tongue. With no dairy! And no funny soy taste either. Impossible? – NO! Soy yogurt comes to the rescue to replace the dairy yogurt in the original recipe, and more than satisfactorily fulfills the requirements for a delicious custard pie with fresh fruit baked inside. Other fruit can be used to replace the pears, if you so desire (think apples, peaches, cherries, blueberries). Enjoy!

Pear Custard Pie

4 pears, peeled and sliced thinly (2 cups)

1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust, or graham cracker crust that has been baked for 10 minutes

4 eggs

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup plain or vanilla soy yogurt

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spread the pear slices evenly over the pie crust.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a food processor or blender and whip until frothy. Pour this custard over the apples. Sprinkle a handful of chopped nuts on top, if desired.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until solid in the center. Cool for about an hour before slicing, but tastes best cold.
