Grape & Pear Pie
Ingredients
  • 1  recipe  Pastry for Double-Crust Pie or 2 rolled refrigerated unbaked piecrusts
  • 1/3  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 2  tablespoons  butter, melted
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded orange peel
  • 5  cups  seedless red or black grapes, left whole
  • 2  medium  red pears, cored and sliced (2 cups)
  • 1  egg white
  • 1  tablespoon  water
  •  
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare Pastry for Double Crust Pie. For filling, in a large bowl stir together flour, brown sugar, melted butter and orange peel. Stir in grapes and pears.

2. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten 1 dough ball. Roll dough from center to edges into a 12-inch circle. To transfer pastry, wrap it around the rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim pastry even with rim of pie plate. Transfer the filling to pastry-lined pie plate. Roll remaining dough ball into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Cut slits to allow steam to escape. Place pastry on the filling; trim to 1/2 inch beyond edge of plate. Fold top pastry under bottom pastry. Crimp edge as desired. Place pie on a baking sheet.

3. In a small bowl combine egg white and water. Brush top of pie with egg white mixture. Cover edge of pie with foil. Bake for 35 minutes; remove foil. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes more or until top of pastry is golden brown and you see steam escaping from slits in crust. Remove from oven and cool at least 6 hours. Pie can be baked up to 24 hours ahead. Loosely cover and store refrigerated. Makes 8 servings.
