  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Press the pie pastry into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Flute the edges. Place the pear halves cut side down in the pie crust with the small ends toward the center.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the butter and sugar together until smooth, then beat in the eggs one at a time until light and fluffy. Stir in flour and vanilla. Pour over the top of the pears.
  4. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, until pears are soft and custard is set in the center. Cool completely before slicing and serving.

I liked this pie. However, I followed the recipe of one of the reviewers. I also used 1/3 C butter and 1/3 C sugar and I also used 6 pears. When I make it again I will add cinnamin to the custar...

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 p...

This is a fantastic recipe. I used brown sugar in the custard and it had a rich, delicious color and flavor. Sprinkle the tops with a little cinnamon/brown sugar and add ground nutmeg to the pea...

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 en...

Great recipe! I tried this out on Family Night and everyone loved it! My only suggestion is to use ripe soft pears. I can't imagine this tasting as great as it did with the crunchier pears. I al...

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!

The only thing I did different is the crust. I used one cup of flour, one tbsp. of sugar and 1/2 cup of butter. I put it through a processor and then pressed it in the bottom of the cake pan. Th...

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 3t...

This was a really great recipe. Use really ripe pears for this. The custard was delicious and would also be a great base for a mixed berry pie.
