Instructions
Dough
  1. In a large mixing bowl stir together the flour, sugar and salt.
  2. Add the butter, shortening and vanilla extract. Using your hands or a pastry cutter, work in the butter until pea-sized crumbs are formed.
  3. Add the ice water 1-2 tablespoons at a time until the mixture begins to come together. If the dough seems dry, add a touch more water. If the dough seems wet, add a touch more flour.
  4. Turn out onto a pastry board and shape into a disk. Wrap in cling and refrigerate for two hours.
Filling
  1. In a large mixing bowl toss together the apples, pears, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, vanilla, lemon juice and cornstarch. Set aside while you begin to roll out the dough.
Assembly
  1. Divide the dough into two equal potions; place half back in the fridge until ready to use for the top portion of the pie.
  2. Roll out the remaining dough to 1/4 inch thick and transfer to pie dish. Shape accordingly.
  3. Add the filling and evenly distribute throughout the baking dish.
  4. Using the remaining dough, roll out to 1/4 inch thick and create desired design. Trim any excess dough and crimp in edges. Chill pie for 30 minutes.
  5. Brush with egg wash and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour. If the crust begins to brown too soon, simply cover the top with foil.
  6. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.
