I am in the middle of baking this pie right now, and I am not so happy with it erupting all over my cookie sheet right now. The 4 ripe pears are so juicey they have been flowing up the sides of the crust and over the crust edge taking off these edges, along with some of the custard filling, on the way to the cookie sheet. I bumped up the pears to 4 and made sure they were ripe per suggestions, I went with 3 eggs & 1/3 cup sugar & butter like suggested, I tossed the pears in some nutmeg and all spice as suggested, and I even topped it off with a struesal topping trying to give it a little something extra on my part.. I am not even sure how edible this will be when whatever is left in the pie crust is done baking, and if I want to bring it for Thanksgiving tomorrow to share with the family. I am hovering on the disappointed side right now. I guess I will know more in a few minutes when it's ready to pull out of the oven to cool. So, I am not sure how anyone fit 6 pears sliced up and the custard into a deep dish pie crust. The house smells great, but the mess in my oven is not very appealing so I am only giving it 2 stars after my attempt at this pie.
