How to Make Spiced Apple-Pear Pie

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 9 steps you must follow to make Spiced Apple-Pear Pie in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • For the filling: Finely grate the lemon zest and set aside. Peel, core and then slice both the apples and pears into 1/2-inch slices. Squeeze the lemon juice over the fruit then toss fruit with the sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt and nutmeg. Mix in the raisins.
  • Step 2
  • Melt the butter in a very large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fruit and cook, stirring until the sugar dissolves and juices simmer, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, add the fruit jam (optional), and cook uncovered, until the fruit softens and the juices evaporate some, about 10 minutes.
  • Step 3
  • Evenly mix the flour into the fruit; then cook about a minute more to thicken the juices slightly. Stir in the vanilla and lemon zest; and remove from the heat. (The filling should resemble tight compote.) Cool completely.
  • Step 4
  • Form the pie: Transfer one prepared pie dough sheet from a lightly flour dusted surface area to 9-inch glass pie pan, so it hangs about 1/2-inch over the edge of the pan. Fill the crust with the prepared fruit so it mounds slightly in the center.
  • Step 5
  • Roll the other dough sheet onto the dusted rolling pin and unroll it over the fruit so it hangs over the edge of the pie pan by about 1/2-inch. Trim crusts evenly with a knife and press both top and bottom edges to seal. Flute the crust edge with a fork or fingers to make an even impression. Refrigerate the pie for at least 20 minutes.
  • Step 6
  • Place the oven rack in the lower third of the oven and heat to 400 degrees F.
  • Step 7
  • Brush pie with egg wash and sprinkle with white sugar on top if desired. Cut 6 to 8 small steam vents into the top of the pie dough. Place pie on a baking sheet (drippings) and bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 375 degrees F.
  • Step 8
  • Bake for another 45-50 minutes until the crust (both top and bottom) is golden brown. If the edges begin to brown too quickly, cut a pie crust shield out of a piece of aluminum foil and cover the edges. When done baking, cool on a rack for 1-2 hours.
  • Step 9
  • Tip: Serve with ice-cream of course.
