The best things about this recipe? How beautiful and simple it is! Uses only 4 ingredients!! It is so easy to customize for your family size- just use the amount of pear halves you actually need and scoops of ice cream.
- 4 large pears
- 1 lb. refrigerated pie crust (1 box of rolled pie/pastry sheets will make this recipe.)
- 8 scoops vanilla ice cream
- Caramel sauce, for drizzling
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Peel and halve pears (leave stem intact). Use a melon baller to scoop out seeds and a small hole. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet face down (round side up).
- Roll out pie crust into 1/4″-thick sheets. Divide into squares large enough to fit over a pear half. Cover pear with pie crust, then use a small knife to cut around the edges of the pear.
- Use a knife to make small slits on the pear. Form excess crust into small leafs and pinch them to the top of the pears (to make them more secure, brush leaf with a little milk). Repeat with remaining pears.
- Bake until pie crust is golden and juice is bubbling out from pears, about 20 minutes.
- Let cool, then flip and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with caramel.
Enjoy! Romans 15:13

An 1840’s General Store situated on our property, is used as our on site Farmer’s Market. The old General Store was once the central hub for a railroad community, and served many important roles in the community of Goggans, even a United States Post Office until the 1960’s. It later served a new, bigger community purpose, inspiring our Farmers Market To You program to be born. This building is registered as a Historical site, and is adjacent to the old “Doctor’s Building”, which is rumored to have served as a Courthouse, among other things. The history on our property, rich with farming and community purpose, inspired us to serve our community in a new and exciting way.
We, both David and I, have always had a passion for growing flowers and plants, rooted from wonderful Grandmothers’ teachings. We, like everyone, began to make a more conscience effort to eat healthy and naturally grown fresh food. Since we have 80 acres, we began by adding a “small” acre and a half vegetable garden. When people began driving an hour or two, just to buy our tomatoes and cucumbers, we realized there was a real need in many communities for families like ours….and Farmers Market To You was born. We have been blessed to expand in to several of our neighboring communities, with our Farmers Market To You Market Basket program…and touch and reach families along the way. We donate food and cash to needy families, food ministries, PTA’s, churches and other vital community service organizations in each of the communities we serve.
