Pear Custard "Pie"

Adapted from Martha Stewart's Great Food Fast

Baking spray
1/4 c. unsalted butter, melted
3 ripe but firm Comice or Bartlett pears, peeled, halved, and cored (Amy's note: I used 6 of our tiny pears)
1/3 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3/4 c. milk
1/4 tsp. salt
Confectioners' sugar for dusting (Amy's note: forgot that, oops!)

1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9-inch pie dish with baking spray or butter. Slice the pears 1/4 inch thick lengthwise. Arrange the slices in the dish.

2. In a blender or food processor, process remaining ingredients (except confectioners' sugar) until smooth.

3. Pour the batter over the pears; bake until golden and firm to the touch, 40-45 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, dusted with confectioners' sugar.
