Recipe type: Pies & Tarts
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 2 frozen pie crusts (my favorite is Trader Joe's)
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 5 fresh pears (about 3-4 cups sliced)
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp heavy cream, for the crust
  • *NOTE: simply use your favorite nondairy milk and shortening-based pie crust for a vegan pie!*
Instructions
  1. First, prepare the filling.
  2. Wash, peel, and thinly slice the pears. Place in a large bowl, and add in the cranberries, sugar, flour, and all the spices. Toss until combined.
  3. Preheat oven to 400F.
  4. Place one of your pie crusts in a pie dish, and pour in the prepared cranberry pear filling.
  5. Cut the second pie crust into strips, and arrange in lattice pattern as desired.
  6. Brush the pie crust with heavy cream, and sprinkle on some extra sugar.
  7. Bake at 400F for 55-60 minutes, until filling bubbles and crust is golden brown.
  8. If the crust appears to be browning too fast, cover the edges with some foil to protect them.
  9. Let cool completely before slicing and serving. Enjoy with some vanilla ice cream!
