One of my personal summertime desserts. I made a lot of servers happy too.

This is a terrifically delicious apple pear pie. The tartness of the Granny Smith apples combines wonderfully with the pears. The apples and pears are cooked down with sugars and seasonings to a nice consistency and flavor. Cinnamon butter brushed on the crust gives it a nice color. This pie holds its shape well when sliced.
