A wonderful custard type pie. The recipe was given to me by a friend when I had a bumper yield of pears from the tree in our yard. It's a favorite even when I have to buy the pears. To make prep time even faster I use a deep dish pie shell from the frozen food section.

My family really liked this pie. I did as others and replaced the white sugar with brown and used half almond flavoring and vanilla. Good way to use pears that are getting too ripe.

Superb! I've been giving neighbors and friends a bag of pears from my tree along with the recipe and everyone just loves it! It certainly satisfies a sweet tooth. The almond although complimentary to the pears, was a bit too strong, so I put 1/2 tsp. almond, along with 1/2 tsp. vanilla. I also sprinkle some brown sugar on top. Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe Nancy. Everyone I've shared it with loves it, but I'm running out of pears!!! Fran

This recipe was good. However, I followed one of the reviewer's recipe. I used 6 pears, 1/3 cup butter and 1/3 cup sugar. Next time, I think I would use cinnamin in the custard. I did sprinkle cinnamin and sugar on the top of the pie once it came out of the oven. It gave it a little more flavor. My husband LOVED it!
