This pie is a favorite with my family. I make it a lot for Mother’s Day and birthdays. It’s a different flavor, and a nice change from the ordinary.

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup sour cream

  • ⅓ cup butter

  1. Very tasty! But I wonder if this freezes well at all? I made little tartlets with this recipe for a Bible study which got cancelled last minute and now have 2 trays of these tarts. Anyone tried freezing these? SO I did freeze them and they did turn out well after I reheated them in - Read more ...
  2. This is a scrumptious pie! The topping was especially lovely...I added some almond extract which really gave it something special.

  4. I think this pie is fantastic. It's such a unique flavor! My husband daughter and parents love it but my sister-in-law finds it too rich. Personally I didn't think it too rich at all. Definitely a recipe to try at least once!
  5. excellent pie! A sweet cool change from the same old. thumbs up

  8. I made this pie for family and everyone really liked it. Only problem was it bubbled up and over the pie pan. Was quick and easy to make especially since you use canned pears. I have never made a pie with canned fruit but this was pretty tasty.
  9. Different strokes for different folks. I thought it was way too sweet and threw it out.
