MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 17, 2012 Edited Oct. 22, 2013

"My family is comprised of pie lovers.They can't wait till fall when apples and pears are abundant. I always made apple pear pie until I stumbled across this recipe, My boys and nephews fell in love with it! Many people are amazed when I say I make pear pie. They have never heard of pears being used to make a pie. Once they taste it, it is a sure thing they will ask for the recipe! I have to make this pie at least a few times a month because the family is so enamored with it!

You may need to adjust the amount of cornstarch if you have really ripe pears ."
