FOR THE TOPPING
I'm the original poster of this recipe. Growing up on a pear farm, I looked forward to my mother making this every fall with fresh, ripe pears. Make sure the pears you use are VERY ripe. If not, boil them a bit before using in the pie. Delicious!
This pie was outstanding! I would boil the pears for a bit prior to adding to the mix as they were a little crunchy next time.
This is one of the best pies I have ever tasted! The sour cream really adds such a unique flavor to the fruit. I only had 2 pears so I also used some G. Smith apples which worked fine. The topping is to die for and stays in it's place instead of being loose and falling off. Excellent and I will use this recipe often.
This pie is amazing, i have a friend who makes it amd they add something special to the top, you boil, 1/2cup white sugar, 1/2cup brown sugar, 1/2cup butter, 1/2cup whipping cream, you heat the sauce a little and drizzle over the pie it is incredibly good.
I'm not a pear lover-- but my boyfriend is, so I made this pie for him. I followed the recipe's directions however, I used an extra pear. I also added more sugar and cinnamon to the streusal topping which I felt it needed. I suggest using an egg white wash ont he crust (I used a frozen pie crust) because the base was a bit soggy. Other than that, my boyfriend and neighbor (who had two pieces) absolutely loved it. Plus, it looks great too!
Absolutely delicious. Wouldn't change a thing!
This pie is good. The only changes I made was that I added some cinnamon and salt into the crumb topping. Easy and yummy.
WOW! Despite the reviews, I really did not believe something so simple could be so good -- it is fantastic! As per some other reviewers, I added cinnamon to the topping.
