"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.

I'm sorry, we didn't like this pie. I made in a 10 in. deep pie dish. I doubled the custard part and added more pears and increased baking time according to the size of my pie until center was s...

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 c...

I have made this several times now, with different ready-bought crusts, and it always comes out yummy!! The only thing I change is I use half the sugar, but that's a personal preference. One tim...

This was very pretty, but not as tasty as it looked. I found it bland and there was not enough pear flavor. The almond was good, and I added vanilla, but it needed something more - perhaps cinna...

It was a very easy pie to make with the frozen pie crust, and the almond flavour was a nice change of taste. Very delicious!
