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! Barb Sepke, Vancouver BC

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.
