Wonderful tasty delicate pie! I skipped the top crust - this pie is toooo pretty to cover up. I arranged those pear slices in a wheel and tossed the nuts and all on top. I also tossed in an egg, added more syrup, doubled the nuts since I put it all a 10" crust. The Thanksgiving crowded looooved it! I might add some strips of citrus rind next time...

I consider myself a pretty good cook, but this thing just doesn't add up. I followed the recipe and my dough didn't really stick together into anything that could be rolled and even after putting more butter and eventually and egg it, it didn't make big enough circle I could use as a crust. I ended up using part of the top for the bottom and made a grid on the top of the pie. But then, I had too much of the stuffing and it would overflow in the oven. I'm just not happy with this one...
