  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 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.
