I enjoyed this pie. it is simple to make and seemed to be a hit. for the crumb mixture i found that i needed 1/2 cup instead of 1/4c. it was pasty not crumbly with 1/4c.
I was disappointed with this. It did not have a strong flavor even with all of the extracts. I was hoping for more. Not a bad pie overall though - easy to make and very light, but not a favorite.
Delicious light pie. I might advise, though, to precook a little bit pastry, for I've had big troubles taking the pie out of the pan. I omitted lemon extract, but may add lemon zest next time. The filling is absolutely excellent "plain" as well.
Great tasting pie! Wonderful use of extra pears on hand! Doubled topping and used softened butter instead of melted butter, cutting in with pastry cutter. Terrific pie! Will serve to guests!
This recipe was as delicious as it was easy. I substituted some of the sour cream with low-fat yogurt and added currants. Everyone who tasted it raved about it. Will be using this recipe a lot.
We thought this was very good too. I made it like pudding in small individual ramakins and didn't mess with the crust at all. Added crushed pecans to the mix as my pears were real ripe and kind of mushy and I wanted some texture. I didn't have lemon extract so used a little lemon peel. I did put a little cinnamin in with the topping, but no other changes. I liked the slight almond flavor. I would love to try this with other fruit as one reviewer suggested. Very easy and a keeper.
My family enjoyed this. I also made more topping. My daughter thought the almond conflicted with the pear flavor. The next time I added an extra 1/2 tsp. of vanilla and omitted the almond. I liked both versions. I used Bartletts as we have a tree. Nice when the tree is full.
Delectable! The topping is great. Make extra! The almond extract makes the flavour so smooth! Not a bad choice healthwise, too!
