Small Kitchen Stories: Pear and Cranberry Sauce Pie
I love cranberry sauce. I like pears too, but I had way too many wasting away in the fridge. Thus I was inspired to make this pie. Our favorite Rte 1 Giant supplies the ingredients.
Pear and Cranberry Sauce Pie
Mixed Pear "bag": I used the Bosc and Red Bartletts: thin slices, ~ 5 cups
Cranberry Sauce: ~ 1 cup
Tapioca: 2 Tablespoons
Sugar: ~ 1/2 cup
Cinnamon and Cardamom
Giant or Pillsbury Ready-Made Pie Crusts, 2.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl combine the fruit, cranberry sauce, spices and a dash of the Grand Marnier. Then fill the bottom pie crust. Top with lots of butter pats. Top with the second crust, crimp and make decorative steam slits.
Bake for ~ 50 minutes.
