Oh how delicious. This is a fabulous tasting pie. I used fresh, sweet, juicy pears from our pear tree. I love the flavor or the ginger and Cointreau. Thanks for a special treat.

This was a really great tasting pie. It looked pretty too. I used orange juice instead of the cointreau liqueir. My pears were just perfect. It turned out fabulous. Thanks for posting this recipe.

I doubled this but otherwise made exactly as directed and was happy with the end result. I did run into a little trouble with the recipe though... The mixture to pour over the fruit was so thick my mixer wouldn't stir it - not sure if it's supposed to be that way? I definitely couldn't "pour" it, so I just kind of globbed it over the pears and baked anyways and seemed ok. I noticed a bitter aftertaste, which I think is because of the flour. Next time I'll use less I think.

This recipe was very good. One thing I did change because of past experience with pear pie was, I pre-cooked the pears in microwave alittle bit. Thanks for sharing!

This was a very delicious and tasty way to use pears. After reading the other reviews and making the pie myself it seems that having the right pear is very important. I used very ripe Red Bartlett pears and they turned out perfect. The filling was a great medium to enhance the flavour of the pears and it developed a wonderful crunchy texture just along the top. I will definately make this again.

Pear pie is wonderful. I make them in the summer/fall when pears are plentiful, in fact, I usually steal the pears from my neighbors tree! I do not use the cointreau, but definitely the vanilla and ginger. Add a teaspoon of small pearl tapioca to thicken up the juice

My pie didn't come out very tasty because the pears, even though I sliced them thin, didn't get soft enough. The flavor of the filling was also very bland. I was very disappointed in this pie.
