There aren't many recipes using fresh pears. I heard this recipe on the radio while I was driving the tractor in the field. I kept repeating the ingredients over and over until it was time to go in the house for lunch, then I wrote the recipe down on paper. We've enjoyed it every summer since.

"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."
