We love apple pie but this pie was even better. The pears add extra depth, juice, and flavor.

A perfect fall treat!

Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

NOTE: THE MEASUREMENT FOR THE APPLES AND PEARS COULD CHANGE DEPENDING ON SIZE OF FRUIT. YOU WANT TO FILL YOUR PIE PLATE WITH FRUIT, SO YOU MAY NEED MORE OR YOU COULD USE LESS. I WOULD SAY THE FRUIT I USED WAS LARGE. SOMEONE ELSE MAY NOT AGREE.

2
pie crust (i used pilsbury)
3
firm but ripe pears, peeled, cored and sliced thin
2
baking apples, peeled, cored and sliced thin
1
lemon
3 Tbsp
sugar
3 Tbsp
brown sugar
2 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 tsp
cardamom
2 Tbsp
butter, cubed

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2Place one pie crust in pie plate; set aside.
3Squeeze juice of one lemon over fruit to prevent fruit from turning brown; set aside.
4Combine sugars, flour, cinnamon and cardamon. Drain lemon juice off fruit; sprinkle sugar/flour mixture over fruit; toss to combine.
5Place fruit in pie plate on top of pie crust; dab butter over fruit. Place 2nd crust on top of fruit and pierce top several time with knife of fork.
6Bake 45 minutes. After 20 minutes of baking, loosely place a sheet of foil on top of pie to prevent crust from over browning.
