pears - peeled, cored and sliced
2 (9 inch)
unbaked pie crusts
1 1/2 tablespoons
This was a great pie, I used Anjou pears and substitute brown sugar for the white. Great way to use up some extras pears as well as a excellent change from apple pie.
I made this pie just the other day. I followed the recipe exactly, but it turned out just okay. It seemed like it was just a weak apple pie. I would rather have the real thing. Not enough of a flavor punch. Thanks for the recipe, though. Always nice to try new things.
I loved this reciepe. As suggested in the other two reviews, I used bown sugar instead of white. I also tossed in a handfull of raisins, the result was a pie that my whole family loved. I will be making this pie again!

this was really good, but i used brown sugar instead of white.
I baked this one day when i had a huge can of pears came out great!!! I got lots of compliments on it. I also doubled the cinnimon and ginger and used brown sugar instead of white this won 1st place blue ribbon at my local county fair!!!!!
Who knew that pears would make such a lovely pie? I had ripe pears that were almost too ripe to eat and seached for a recipe so I didn't have to toss them out. I was so surprised at how tasty the pie was. The pears lend a delicate, but distinct flavor. Almost apple like, but better. Sweet, but not overpowering. This is a very nice recipe. I did add a couple tablespoons of Frangelico liqueur on top of the pears before baking. It gave the pie a slighty nutty tone. Wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!
Yum, yum, yum! Tastes just like apple pie! Tastes great even without the top crust.
Followed the recipe to a T and it ended up good looking and tasty. However, spices may be, in my opinion, at least doubled (1/2 teaspoon ginger and 1/4 cinnamon). I may also try to use brown sugar instead of white one. Otherwise great pie.
