  • Combine 1/2 cup sugar, sour cream, 1/4 cup flour, egg, vanilla, and salt in a bowl until blended. Fold in the pears. Pour the mixture into the pie plate and bake the pie for 15 minutes.

  • While the pie is baking, prepare the topping: mix the 2/3 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, melted butter, and rolled oats together in a bowl.

  • Remove the pie from the oven and sprinkle with the crumble topping. Return the pie to the oven and bake until the filling is set and the crust is brown, about 20 minutes more. Allow to cool and set before serving.

I'm the original poster of this recipe. Growing up on a pear farm, I looked forward to my mother making this every fall with fresh, ripe pears. Make sure the pears you use are VERY ripe. If not, boil them a bit before using in the pie. Delicious! Read More

I made this pie today. It is a beautiful pie. It is very bland. It was good but lacking. It may also need a longer cook time. Read More

This pie was outstanding! I would boil the pears for a bit prior to adding to the mix as they were a little crunchy next time. Read More

This is one of the best pies I have ever tasted! The sour cream really adds such a unique flavor to the fruit. I only had 2 pears so I also used some G. Smith apples which worked fine. The topping is to die for and stays in it's place instead of being loose and falling off. Excellent and I will use this recipe often. Read More

I'm not a pear lover-- but my boyfriend is so I made this pie for him. I followed the recipe's directions however I used an extra pear. I also added more sugar and cinnamon to the streusal topping which I felt it needed. I suggest using an egg white wash ont he crust (I used a frozen pie crust) because the base was a bit soggy. Other than that my boyfriend and neighbor (who had two pieces) absolutely loved it. Plus it looks great too! Read More

This pie is EASY and wonderful. Fresh mildly tart yet subtle and sophisticated... I really like the flavors and the texture. I also like that nobody is going to expect this pie. Bring it out for a nice surprise on any special occasion or no occasion whatsoever! Read More
