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~
Pear Apple Pie
9' top & bottom pie crust (make your own or go with the frozen, thawed)
4 Apples (2 golden delicious, 2 Fuji- peeled, cored and chopped
3 D'anjou pears - peeled cored & chopped
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 T flour
1 tsp corn starch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 T butter cut into small pieces
Preheat oven to 375. Grease pie dish and lay bottom crust in it. In a small bowl combine sugars, flour, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a large bowl combine apples, pears and dry ingredients, stir until well mixed.
Add fruit filling to pie dish, sprinkle butter over the top & cover with top crust. (for golden top crust brush with 1 beaten egg mixed with 1 Tbsp of milk)
