Reviews for Creamy Pear Pie
"Excellent recipe - easy and delicious! Family thoroughly enjoyed it so will definitely make again. Thank you!"
"This was good. My pears weren't as sweet, so I upped the sugar a little."
"This was one of the best pies I have ever tasted. I am not partial to pie usually but this is the exception."
"I tried this with canned pears and it did not taste as good, also used veggie peeler to peel the pears worked great."
"This pie is sooo good, my whole family loves it and I will be making it many times again. The only down fall is the prep of the pears."
"I wonder whether this would work with frozen pears. Maybe I'll try it someday, adding an extra spoon of flour."
