Ingredients

  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, very soft, divided
  • 3/4 cup pecan halves
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 unbaked pie crusts
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 medium-sized firm ripe pears, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • 2 Line a 9-inch pan with foil, allowing 1-inch overhang.
  • 3 Spread 2 tablespoons of butter on the foil. Press pecans, round side down, in butter.
  • 4 Pat 1/3 cup brown sugar into butter.
  • 5 Press one of the prepared pie crusts into bottom and sides of pan over brown sugar, but do not trim.
  • 6 Arrange apple slices over crust.
  • 7 In small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of flour, cinnamon and 3/4 cup granulated sugar. Sprinkle half of this mixture over the apples.
  • 8 Top with pears, arranging evenly so top crust will lie flat. Sprinkle with remaining half of the flour mixture.
  • 9 Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter and add lemon juice. Pour over pears.
  • 10 Top with remaining crust, trim edges closely and seal crusts together. Gently push crust edges toward center of pie.
  • 11 Bake in lower part of preheated oven to ensure bottom crust gets done. Bake 10 minutes, reduce heat to 375 degrees, and continue baking 40 minutes.
