"I used pears right off the tree, from my local grower. This year the pears were exceptionally sweet. I cut the sugar in the recipe down to a little less then a 1/2 cup. My pie turned out great. It was simple to make I used a dairy section pie crust. This recipe I will be making for years to come."

"How lovely and so easy! The second time around I even "cheated"...(surprise company)...purchased pastry, used canned instead of fresh filling. Family and company LOVED it. Guess I'll be making this again ~ many times!"

"This is so delicious, I make it just for us, no need to wait for company dinners. If the pears are really hard, like an apple, I found that I needed to precook them in the microwave for about 4 minutes before putting them on the pie crust. I have made this four times this month!"
