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!

Hubby's birthday was coming up and the budget was tight. The main ingredient we had for pie was a large bag of pears so I went searching and decided on this recipe. I had expected to make it with firm pears but the pears were at perfect eating ripeness when I sliced into it. I still sliced them thin but the fruit in the pie was all soft like it had been made with applesauce so if I make it with ripe pears again I will cut them chunkier. The flavor was good. We ate it about 24 hrs later and the crumble had gotten soggy. I would recommend making it in the afternoon of the evening that you want to serve it. Time to cool enough to be sliceable but not time to get soggy.

This was a great pie! I had about 10 Bartlett pears that ripened all at the same time-so I needed to make something. This pie was light, and not too sweet. The topping was my husband's favorite part! I will definitely make this again, it's a keeper!

This pie was AWESOME! I thought it did taste a lot like an apple pie but man what a great way to use extra pears. We used Bartletts that were a bit under ripe and there was no graininess or anything. T

This was delicious! It came out perfect. The pears were not mushy, but nice and firm. I had never heard of pear pie before I made this, and was very curious to see what one would taste like. I admit I was a little disappointed that it tasted a lot like apple pie, albeit a very good apple pie. I made it for a church dinner, and it was a hit. One lady, who told me pear pie was her favorite, complimented me on it. When I confided that I was a little disappointed it tasted like apple, she laughed and said, "Yes, only better!". I think she's right!
