I love seasonal flavors and I think nothing feels more fall than apples and pears. As far as fruit goes, they are the fruit of the season so I try to work them into many of my recipes. I wanted a fun and new spin on a classic apple pie and that’s exactly what I created with this apple pear pie recipe.
Apple Pear Walnut and Raisin Pie Recipe
- 1 pie crust with extra dough for lattice top
- 2 apples sliced
- 2 pears sliced
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/2 raisins
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1 stick of butter
- 1/2 raw cane sugar
- 1/2 brown sugar
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 1tsp All Spice
- 1tsp nutmeg
Once apples and pears are sliced add them to a bowl and toss with cinnamon, All Spice and Nutmeg. You’ll also add the walnuts and raisins. I also added a little organic cane sugar on the fruit.
You’ll want to melt the butter and add the flour in a sauce pan. Then add in the sugar until melted.
Easy Pie Dough Recipe: I made my own dough quickly in my stand mixer The recipe is super simple 1 1/2 cup flour add in a pinch of salt, and 1 tablespoon of sugar. You’ll mix in your stand mixer with 8 tablespoons of cubed butter. The butter should be very cold and you should use the flat attachment. Whisk on medium high until the dough is coarse then add in a tablespoon of water at a time. I did 3 tablespoons and it rolled into a ball. I then placed the dough in plastic wrap and rolled out. I had enough for the dough and the lattice top.
Baked for 50-60 minutes.
BEFORE baking: Pour the butter and sugar mix over top of the lattice pie. There will be enough to cover the top of the pie. Yes, I said cover up the pie dough too.
