"Love this pie! So Yummy so simple only a few things needed! Be careful that you do not under cook or over cook this pie! Either of these will ruin it! This pie you defiantly have to babysit the last minutes of baking! If you do not like to watch things and really be cautious to them do not make this pie then! But other than that the pie is super amazing if you are a master or can master the babysitting aspect hahaha"

"I really enjoyed this pie - it was so quick and easy to make and you can really taste the pears. Next time I may spice it up by adding some cinnamon to the custard."
