My DH loved this pie, but for me it had a bit too much nutmeg. Would make it again with about half the measure of nutmeg.

WOW! This was spectacular and so easy to make. I have never made a double crust pie before, so this was a first in that area, and it was my first pear isnt going to be my last. I didnt add the butter, and it was great. I left the skin on this time, but next time I will probly take it off. My DH was raving over it, and I have a picture I will put on here soon! THanks Secret!!!
