    Wow, YUM! My husband isn't a dessert guy, but he LOVED this pie. I made my own caramel but otherwise followed the recipe as is. Definitely a new favorite pie.

    I love this pie! It is a little more time consuming than I usually take to bake but it is well worth it. We have also baked this pie using apples instead of pears. We omitted the nutmeg and used a full teaspoon of cinnimon. My kids do not like nuts so we leave them of sometimes, expecially on the apple version. Thanks for a great recipe.

    This pie was just heavenly! I love pears and this was a wonderful way to enjoy them. Instead of tapioca I used cornstarch.Thanks for a winner!

    I made this with Xylitol instead of sugar, except for the brown sugar in the topping, and skipped the caramel due to hubbie's diabetes. It was still SUPER yummy! This is a "keeper" for sure. I made this a second time and popped it in the freezer for future use. Unfortunately, when the pears thawed, they gave up their juice and I ended up with pear soup in soggy pie crust. Bummer. Don't try to freeze this one.

    I have made this outrageous delicious pie many times. I cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup and add 1 rounded tsp of cinnamon. I bake the pie making sure the top does not overbrown and freeze them to give as gifts and for eating during the holidays when my tree is quite bare. I have also used walnuts and sliced almonds with great success.
