Caramel pear pie

Delicious and simple fall dessert. I used Conference pears.

1 unbaked flaky pastry crust
3-4 ripe pears, cored, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 tart apple, cored, peeled and cut into thin slices
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch salt
3-4 Tbsp sauce caramel

In a large bowl combine flour, cinnamon and salt. Add pears and apples and toss to coat.

Roll pastry crust out and place in pie plate. Pour in pears and apple mixture.

Bake in preheated oven at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until pears are soft and crust browned. Drizzle caramel over top while still hot.

Serve warm or chilled.

This looks amazing! Is this a pre-packaged crust that can be purchased in France? If so, what is the name of it?
