This holiday bring a pie to the table that will be the star of any gathering. We’ve partnered with Marcella DiLonardo, founder of Modest Marce, to bake this spiced apple pear pie recipe that’s both beautiful and delicious.
It is FINALLY fall!! I cannot explain in words how much I love this time of year. Between pumpkin patches, apple picking, warm cider, spiced lattes and the pretty leaves changing color, it is all so magical! Not to mention that it means Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. Seriously though, what is there not to love about this time of year?
No matter what season it is, pies are one of my favorite desserts to whip up.
While nothing beats a fall apple pie, this time around I am changing things up and adding pears to the mix.
While pears and apples are quite similar in shape and texture, the pears add an additional punch of flavor. This is the perfect pie for any fall gathering, and if you want another little twist on this pie, add a cup of fresh cranberries. It turns the apples and pears a pretty pink hue and adds a bit of tartness.
You can get as fancy as you want with the crust design or keep things rustic and simple. I opted for a striped braided top (the most braids I have ever incorporated into one pie).
Lastly, I used mini leaf pastry cutters to line the edges. This allows for a nice clean look, especially since sometimes crimping those edges perfectly can get a bit tricky! I highly recommend chilling the decorated pie before baking to ensure it holds its shape.
