  • As I'm not much of a fan of pears, I thought I'd try this recipe anyway. I found it a little dry, all in all. The flavours were full but that richness to satisfy my sweet "need" wasn't there. - 2/5/10

  • Fantastic! I had to substitute single package Cinnamon and Spice Instant Oatmeal, but it was still wonderful. My dad, who doesn't like warm pie, ate two helpings right out of the oven. - 1/27/09

  • I made this for dessert last night and it was SO GOOD! It would be great with other fruit options too - apples, peaches, berries - pretty much any combo you can think of. I will definitely be making this again soon. - 10/28/08

  • splenda is sucralose (0 calorie "sugar") and smart balance is a type of margarine that is supposed to be healthier than regular margarine. If you can't find sucralose, I am sure you could substitute with a pinch of stevia powder and keep it low calorie. Hope this helps ;) - 5/11/07

  • Hello, I'd really like to try out this recipe. Please give the generic terms for products Smart Balance Light & Splenda e.g. margarine. So that those of us in other continents may know what product to use that is available to us. - 3/19/07
