I came across this recipe (can't remember where) and scribbled it on a piece of paper because my husband's favorite fruit is pears. I finally made it for the first time a month ago and he commented that "This is the best pie I have ever tasted!" This time, he even went and bought the pears himself and asked me to make it for him, which means he REALLY likes it. It is great to make in the fall when pears are a plenty. It's a nice change of pace from apple pie. Top it with vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream and devour! I like to use Classic Pie crust, Recipe #26205. It is by far, the BEST pie crust ever. By the way, depending on the size of your pears, you may need more than six. It's best to make sure you have enough filling because the pears cook down and the pie shrinks.
