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

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. The Test Kitchen
