I thought this pie was awesome! I made this for my husband and father in law, and they loved it too! I used 3 very large bosc pears, pealed them and cut them about 1/2" thick. I let them set in Lemon Juice while prepping other things. I took the advise of some of the other reviews and upped the butter to about 1 & 1/4 sticks, added about 1/4 cup brown sugar, and one more egg (total 3), and 1 tsp of cinnamon to the custard mix. I also used Splenda instead of sugar (father in law is type 2.) I sprinkled the top of the pie with Cinnamon Sugar lightly, and it got a very nice golden brown crust. The other thing I did was I thought that maybe the crust would get burned in the oven for a whole hour, so about 1/2 way through, I pulled it out and covered the edges of the pie with foil and it stayed nice and golden brown. Thanks so much for the recipe, I will definitely make this again!
