  1. Great recipe!! I have a pear tree and have been trying to figure out what to do with the fruit. To soften the pears I first diced them up and simmered them with a 1/2C of water on the stovetop. Once softened I followed the recipe. Just a couple of substitutions as suggested by previous - Read more ...
  2. I did make some modifications to this but I thought it was pretty good. I used two apples and two pears because two pears alone didn't seem like enough.

  3. Very good. Used pears from friend's tree. Now I will have to make it every year:). Use 1/4 pound butter not 1/4 cup butter. Also I cut the white suger to 3/4 cup and changed the Vanilla to 3teasp. 1 teasp almond extract.

  7. This is delicious! I used up about 5 small pears that were just about over-ripe. I had arranged them in a really pretty pattern but it was all covered up by the custard- which was ok in the end as it is absolutely delicious. Mine made a thin golden-brown meringue layer on the top and - Read more ...

  9. This recipe reminds me of one my grandma gave me that has rhubarb in it, I love the custard. I wanted to use up some pears and this really worked. I used 6 pears instead of 2, used a deep dish pie pan, and a pillsbury pie crust. I also added one egg,to make 3 - Read more ...
  10. I was really surprised how much I like this pie the only thing I did different was to slice the pears at the bottom of the pie. It was easy to make and everyone liked it!
