Pears are one of the few fruits available year-round, however, it isn’t until the fall that they seem to step into the spotlight. This simple, beautiful, free-form pie is the perfect way to take full advantage.

- In a deep bowl, combine cornstarch, cinnamon and 1 cup of the sugar. Add pears and vanilla and toss to coat well.
- Spoon pears onto center of crust, spreading to within 2 inches of edge.
