      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!

  2. Jessica @ Sweetest Menu says

    Wow! What an incredible looking pie! I don't think I've ever had a pear pie before!

    • Sara says

      Hi Jessica, Thank you so much, pear pies are awesome, sending you a virtual slice!

    Given a choice, I'd choose to live on pie and what a great pie to start with. I have made my weight in apple pies and I have made apple and pear pies but never a pear only pie. My brain explodes at the thought.

    • Sara says

      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 🙂

    You're my go-to blog for sweet recipes! This is super cool.

    I am beyond jealous that you have a pear tree! What a fun find 🙂 Pears are one of my favorite fruits and this pie looks absolutely delicious. Pinning!

      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!

  6. Manali @ CookWithManali says

    oh wow, that's a lot of pears!! Love this pie and looking forward to more pear recipes from your kitchen!

    Ooo, that pie looks fantastic! Love the height - it's so much more dramatic than the pies I usually make.

  8. Amy @ Thoroughly Nourished Life says

    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!

    • Sara says

      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:)

  9. Lucy @ Bake Play Smile says

    Oooh we have so many pears!!!! This is going to be perfect. What a gorgeous big pie! Thanks so much for linking up with Fabulous Foodie Fridays. xx

    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.

    • Sara says

      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
