Quince needs to be cooked before using, so this fruit pie takes a bit more effort, but is well worth it. Quinces are simmered together with a honey syrup until tender, then baked in shortcrust pastry. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
If you're a purist when it comes to pastry, use homemade shortcrust pastry instead of shop-bought.
Excellent. I put the mixture in vol-au-vent cases. It was delicious. Fresh quinces from the garden – perfect autumn warmer :-) - 03 Nov 2013
Love this pie! - 16 Sep 2010
This pie is absolutely amazing! Although I made some modifications. I used quince with apples and I had more apples thah quince. I seemed 1/2 cup honey and 3/4 cup in the sauce would be very sweet, so I used only 1/4 cup brown sugar in the sauce and it was enough. When I added the sugar mixture to the reserved quince liquid the sauce became too thick, so I needed to add more water. I`m sure this pie will be amazing not only with quince, but with apples or pears. - 05 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
