Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The tartness of the Granny Smith apples combines with the delightful sweetness of the pears to make for one to-die-for pie! A terrifically well done pie.

NOTE: We used two pie crusts, one for the bottom and one for the top.

Ingredients

6
pear, fresh, peeled, cored and sliced
6
apples, granny smith, peeled, cored and sliced
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
1
deep dish pie crust
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1 stick
butter
1 tsp
vanilla
1 c
white sugar
1 c
brown sugar, light

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
2
In a medium saucepan add the pears, apples, butter minus 2 tablespoons, vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and both sugars (minus 2 tablespoons of the white). Boil for 25 minutes.
3
Pour into pie crust, then top with the second crust. Put in your air holes wherever you want. Bake for 10 minutes.
4
Add the rest of the sugar, cinnamon and butter in a small saucepan. Heat until melted.
5
Spoon onto the half-baked pie. Then put back into the oven and bake for 25 minutes more or until golden brown. Let cool and serve.
