How to Make Apple Pear Ginger Pie


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

    Make your favorite double pie recipe or use mine.
    Divide pastry in half

    Roll out your bottom pastry and line a 9 inch pie plate.
    Sprinkle your chopped nuts and candied ginger over the crust.
    Mix your peeled apples and pears together in a large bowl. Set aside. In a small bowl mix the sugars, flour, lemon peel ,ground ginger & salt.Mix with prepared fruit and turn into your pie plate covering the candies ginger and nuts.
    Sprinkle the filling with the lemon juice and dot with the tbsp of butter.
    Cover with top crust. Seal edges and prick or slit top all over for steam to escape.
    Bake at 450 for for 15 mins.
    Reduce heat to 350 and continue baking 40 to 45 until golden brown and fruit is bubbling through slits.
  2. Cool and enjoy!!
    We had organic vanilla yogurt on top!! Yummy!!
  3. Double Pastry:
    Combine flour and salt. Cut in room temperature shortening until it resembles peas. Beat egg, water and vinegar together. Add to flour and mix with a fork until mixture is moistened. DO NOT OVERWORK. It will make it tough.
    Divide dough in half and shape each in a ball.

    I always put a sheet of wax paper on my counter , put the dough in the middle, cover with another sheet of wax paper and roll out. I remove the top layer of wax paper, flip the crust over into the pie plate and peel off the wax paper. Discard.
    Repeat for top crust.
