Recipe exchange

So I realized I had become an adult when  I became obsessed with recipe exchanges.

I’m always looking for new creative recipes that my kiddos will like…and my friend Suzanne sent me this one.  I mean does it get any better than this?

ingredients:
2 pkgs pillsbury pie crusts (4 crusts total)
or if you have time make pie crust from scratch.
6 fresh pears. peeled & cut into little 1/2 inch squares.
1 cup fresh raspberries.
1 tablespoon lemon juice.
1/2 teaspoon almond extract.
3/4 cup sugar.
3 tablespoons flour.
1 tablespoon melted butter or one egg for egg wash.
vanilla sugar.
pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. cut pie crusts into fourths and in lightly greased jam jars fill entire inside with a thin layer of pie crust. preserve 1/2 a pie crust for cut out strips. in large bowl combine pears, lemon juice and almond extract. toss to coat. add sugar & flour then mix well. spoon pear mixture into jars popping in a fresh raspberry here and there. (raspberries are somewhat sour so you only new a few per jar.)

next slice the set aside pie crust into thin strips. criss-crossing them across the pie jar tops. pinch along the rim of the top and trim any excess. lightly brush melted butter or egg wash on to crusts and sprinkle with vanilla sugar.
