"I made this recipe as it stated the first time. The next time I decreased the sugar to 1/3 cup. I also changed the topping a little. I decreased the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and increased the oats to a scant cup. Plus added a handful of slivered almonds. I felt the flavors were better with the decrease of sugar. I have made this for several gatherings and it has been quite a hit."

"Good starter recipe. Next time I will cut in half the topping. Also, be aware of how ripe your pears are. Mine were very ripe, so the result was way too sweet with the amount of sugar recommended by the recipe. I will make again- very nice combination of flavors, but with the changes I mentioned."
