My fiance loves pears, and has been begging me to make him a pear pie. I have never baked with pears before, so when I went to the grocery store, I was surprised to ind that there are lots of different kinds of pears. Not knowing which kind to use, and I bought some of each. I used 2 Anjou, 3 Bosch, and 2 Bartlett. This was enough fruit to fill a 9-in deep dish pie plate. Instead of using a bit of a few different spices, I used 1 tsp of Cinnamon Plus Spice Blend from Pampered Chef. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out beautifully! The pears were perfectly done-tender, but not soggy, and you could taste the distinct flavor of each kind of pear. And the crumb topping was perfect-a buttery, crispy contrast to the sweet, soft pears. I will definitely be making this pie again!
