This is a nice change from fresh apple or peach pies. Bartlett pears are recommended.

This was a great pie I used Anjou pears and substitute brown sugar for the white. Great way to use up some extras pears as well as a excellent change from apple pie. Read More

I made this pie just the other day. I followed the recipe exactly but it turned out just okay. It seemed like it was just a weak apple pie. I would rather have the real thing. Not enough of a flavor punch. Thanks for the recipe though. Always nice to try new things. Read More

Who knew that pears would make such a lovely pie? I had ripe pears that were almost too ripe to eat and seached for a recipe so I didn't have to toss them out. I was so surprised at how tasty the pie was. The pears lend a delicate but distinct flavor. Almost apple like but better. Sweet but not overpowering. This is a very nice recipe. I did add a couple tablespoons of Frangelico liqueur on top of the pears before baking. It gave the pie a slighty nutty tone. Wonderful. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This recipe is good very much like apple pie. To make it a bit more exciting however I made a crumb topping out of 1/2 c. oats 3 TBS brown sugar 2 TBS melted butter and a dash of salt instead of a top layer of pie crust. It came out very good! I would make it again. Read More

Followed the recipe to a T and it ended up good looking and tasty. However spices may be in my opinion at least doubled (1/2 teaspoon ginger and 1/4 cinnamon). I may also try to use brown sugar instead of white one. Otherwise great pie. Read More
