Pixiedust, This was my first time ever to make or even taste a pear pie.It was so good!! I loved the crispy topping !!! I had a fruit basket given to me at Christmas and it had pears in it,They were hard as a rock,so we were waiting for them to get ripe.I don't care for the grainy taste of fresh pears,but I like them cooked pretty good,so I decided to try this pie. Thanks for a great recipe,Darlene Summers

This is a lovely pie!! Your instructions are clear and easy to follow. I have never made a pear pie before but will from now on. This really hit the spot for us. Thank you so much for sharing this. It is now in my "keeper" notebook. :-)

I had made a Pear Pie many years ago and remembered how good it was so when I saw this recipe, I decided to make another one since I had lost my recipe. It was delicious. I made it just as the recipe said and nothing was added or taken away. It was wonderful!!! I won't lose this recipe!
