"I got rave reviews too. I have made it twice and I added more pears the last time. Makes it have a little more juice but we like it that way. I only made 2 changes both times, I added more blueberries thanks to another review and I added 1t of cinnamon to the topping. Great recipe."

"YES! I baked this pie for a town bake-off & won 3rd place. Many folks say I should have taken 1st. It is so good! The only change I made to the pie was to use 2 cups of blueberries. It just seemed like it needed more. So far, I've made this recipe 3 times... and each time has been wonderful!"
