      Thank you Linda! I hope you get to try some Mile High Pear Pie over the next weeks and upcoming Holidays, I will be making more for sure!

      Hello Maureen, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment, a pear pie is so good, I hope you try one! I think the key is getting the “right” kind of pears to bake with and getting the combination of spices and sugar just right 🙂

      Hi Taylor, if you lived near me, I would give you a bucket of pears, seriously, there’s enough for everyone, I have to make another one of these Mile High Pear Pies soon so they don’t all get wasted! Thanks for stopping by!

    What luck to have a pear tree right in your backyard! That’s wonderful 🙂
    My parents have a gorgeous mango tree that blesses us with fruit every summer, and they’ve just expanded their fruit trees so hopefully next year we will have apples and citrus too! There’s nothing like eating something growing in the same patch of earth that you are 🙂
    I can’t wait to try this pear pie, what a delightful change from apple!

      Hi Amy, I wholeheartedly agree with you that there’s nothing like growing your own food. I can’t wait to get some gardens established here and maybe expand with more fruiting trees. Your parents are SO lucky, mangoes are so delicious, they must taste amazing right from the tree! Thank you for visiting:)

    This looks so good. I have a bounty of pears, too, and I’m wondering, did you use the pears while they are still hard? Do they soften up baking? I want to make this, but wondering if you waited til the pears softened.

      Hi Rosie, when the pears are firm (ripe but firm), not soft is when they are good for baking. When they are very soft, then they don’t hold up as well when they are baked. Stick to a pear that is a good variety for baking, like Bosc, Anjou and even Bartlett pears. Thank you for your question! Best, ~Sara
