Reviews for Pear Crumble Pie
"I have made several times so surprised I never reviewed but likely because I use a printed off recipe usually . These are lovely pies-easy to make and my 6 year old had been helping me with these every Autumn since he was 2 and now my 2 year old daughter has helped me bake her first pear pies today. Very yummy! Thanks for many family memories too!"
"Having an orchard with all kinds of fruits, when I was growing up, my mother always made pear pie. She made it just like apple or peach with 2 crusts. Just adjust the sugar for the extra sweetness of the pears. We always enjoyed it!"
"this pie is very yummy and it's a neat alternative to dutch apple. the crumble on top was delicious!"
