Coconut-Streusel Pear Pie Recipe

Coconut-Streusel Pear Pie Recipe

I remember my mom making this pie when I was growing up. I make several while I have fresh pears from the family tree, then freeze them for later. One taste tester declared it “the best pear pie I have ever eaten.” —Paula Hoffman, Plainview, Nebraska
