If you want your house to smell like fall, bake this pie! The spices and honey smell wonderful while baking. We could hardly wait to take that first bite! I loved the earthy spices and sweetness the honey added to the pie. The brown sugar crumble is crunchy and perfect with the sweet warm pears. If you'd like add some finely chopped nuts to the crumble. I hope you enjoy this pie as often as you can (:
