I used Bartlett pears for this pie but didn't peel them, as we appreciate all the extra vitamins that the skin includes! Other than that, though, I followed the recipe right on down, & had one of the best tasting pies I've made in quite some time! Definitely a pie I'll make again! Thanks for posting the recipe!

I cannot give stars as I only made the filling of pie and exchanged apples for pears but it was great and I followed ingredients for filling and can tell you it works out well - great with custard, would be fab in a pie and subbing the fruit caused no problems.
