    Ah, a wonderful pie indeed. I really love single-crust pies with plenty of fruit, so I put a little foil lid on it to mimic the top crust and stop it drying out too much. Yes, the result looks a bit goofy, but it ended up tender and perfectly done. After reading some of the "soupy" comments I cut the butter back to two tablespoons, and then added a teaspoon of cardamom to punch it up a bit. It pairs beautifully with vanilla ice cream. My mom and sister and I mowed through more than half of it, and they said to feel free to bring this pie again when we have our next family dinner. Oh wait, I also subbed Splenda for the sugar and we never knew the difference. Thanks for a winner.

    This pie was tasty, but I found it a little too sweet. I think I'd use less sugar next time. Other than that, I enjoyed it and will make it again.

    This was my first attempt at pear pie. It was yummy, but I don't think 45 minutes is quite enough cooking time. My pie came out really soupy and the pears were still hard. It was tasty enough that I'm going to try it again...I'll just extend the cooking time a bit next time.
