Fun with Food: Apple and Pear Pie

We don’t often have dessert, but as the weather starts to get cooler, sometimes we feel like a little bit extra to fill our bellies.

Nothing says “Autumn” to me more than apple pie, and with the added touch of pear, this was one delicious pud!


Apple and Pear Pie – serves 4-6

3 medium apples, peeled and diced
1 pear, peeled and diced
2T brown sugar
2t cinnamon
400-500g sweet shortcrust pastry

Preheat oven to 180degC. If you don’t have a loose bottomed pie dish (like me), line the bottom of a dish with baking paper.

Line the tin with pastry; trim the edges and do some patch-ups if necessary.

Bake the pastry blind for 10 minutes; remove baking beans/rice/whatever and bake a further five minutes to allow the pastry to dry out a little.

Combine fruit with sugar and cinnamon. Tip into cooked pastry shell, discarding any juice that has leeched out.

Top with pastry and seal well; poke a few holes in the top.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until pastry is golden and fruit is cooked.


Fun with Food
Fun with Food is a way for you to share your foodie (mis)adventures with other people. You don’t have to be a superb cook, or produce Masterchef-quality plates of food; this will be a place to share new and favourite recipes, meal plans, cooking on a budget, lunchbox ideas, new products, kitchen successes and disasters (because we all have those!) and maybe some handy tips for getting fussy kids to eat their dinner!

The linky will open on a Tuesday and stay open for a week, so I hope you’ll share your kitchen adventures, and be inspired by what other people are doing in the heart of their homes.
