Pears caramel pie

Most ingredients in this pears caramel pie are leftover that I need to use up before I go on vacation, I even use store bought pie shell, to make quick and easy.
I have lots of fresh pears from my friend,and homemade kumquat candied in the fridge that I almost forget it's been there awhile  :)   so I add them to the pie as well.
kumquat candied in this recipe is optional,but it taste really well together,maybe you can substitute with any little bit fruits candied for a taste.







Ingredients:
- 1  9" pie shells ( homemade or store bought )
- 3 Tbsp dulche de leche / caramel
- half lemon juice
- lemon zest
- 4-5 pears
- 1/4 cup kumquat candied ( optional )
- 2 Tbsp butter ( melted )
- 1/2 Tbsp sugar

Preparations :
preheat oven on 350 F
peel the pears, slice round and core the seeds
in a small bowl, mix caramel/dulche de leche with lemon juice and zest, stir until smooth and combine


brush pie shell with melted butter
spread caramel mixture on pie shell evenly


arrange sliced pears and kumquat candied ( optional ) brush with melted butter
sprinkle with sugar
bake for about 30-40 minutes.

I'd love to make this! Haven't used caramel before. And we don't get to buy the pastry shells in our stores:( Have to start from scratch. Your pie does look very tasty!
