This is from a cookbook put out by Stokely-Van Camp in the early 80's. My husband thought it was an apple pie the first time I made it, since the pears are canned you don't have to worry about them being soft when the pie comes out of the oven. Several years ago I made it for a fundraiser/dessert auction at church, and someone bought it for $12.00.
