The idea of pear pie has always appealed to me, but I never tasted it until I cooked up this recipe. It definitely lived up to my expectations for pear pie, and satisfied the 10 or so co-workers I shared it with.

This was a wonderfully refreshing change. I used bosc pears so there was just a hint of crunchiness which went well with the crumb topping. It was a hit in my family!
