Sweet Dessert, Pear-Apple Pie



I was glad I made this on Wednesday night, I did oversleep a touch this Thanksgiving and it would have been one crazy hustle trying to squeeze pie-making in there!

We'll be having pumpkin pie or pumpkin cheesecake on Saturday and a cranberry cake on Sunday, so I thought I'd go with a fruit pie and I love baking with both pears and apples in the fall~

Beth, I love apple and pear - baking with them is magnificent. Your pie is so beautiful!

It looks delicious and I love the idea of putting the apples and pears together rather than just having a plain apple pie.
