    8 servings

  • Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large ripe pears, peeled and chopped (about 4 cups)
  • TOPPING:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • Directions

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg, sour cream, sugar, flour, yogurt, vanilla and salt. Gently stir in pears. Pour into crust. Bake 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, for topping, in a small bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, pecans and cardamom. Cut in butter until crumbly; sprinkle over pie.
  • Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean and topping is golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Cover edge with foil during the last 10 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.
