Pear Crumble Pie

Great deal at the Farmer's Market this morning...15 Bartlett pears for $3.00. It's the peak season for pears, so I was thrilled to get this price.

And oh, they are so tasty.
I have a great recipe for a Pear Crumble Pie.  If Autumn had a taste then it would be this pie. 

DURING:  Prepping the pie.
AFTER:  Fresh from the oven.
