Can you say....YUM?? Absolutely amazing. Had to practice self-control with this one. Thanks for sharing - it's a keeper!! :)
My family really enjoyed this. The Husband wasn't too sure, but everyone cleared their plate and asked for more.
This is a great pie. I used pears that I had canned back in the fall, and made pretty much according to directions. This will be a regular in our home!!!
