This is a fantastic alternative to the traditional apple pie. It's a great way of making use of pears when in-season. A shortcrust pastry envelopes a sweet, slightly spiced pear filling. Enjoy with whipped cream, ice cream or custard. The perfect autumn treat for any time of the year.
it came out delicious, got a lot of compliments. will surely do it again - 18 Sep 2015
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. - 18 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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 - 02 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
