6
cups thinly sliced peeled Granny Smith apples
3
cups thinly sliced peeled pears
3/4
cup granulated sugar
1/4
cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
2
to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon salt
1
box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1
tablespoon Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1
bag (8 oz) toffee bits (1 1/2 cups)
1/2
cup butter or margarine
1
cup packed brown sugar
1/4
cup half-and-half
1
cup chopped pecans
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, gently toss apples, pears, granulated sugar, 1/4 cup flour, the cinnamon and salt. Let stand 15 minutes.
  2. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9 1/2- inch glass deep-dish pie plate; sprinkle lightly with 1 tablespoon flour. Spoon apple mixture into crust-lined plate; dot with 2 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the toffee bits. Top with second pie crust; seal and flute edges. Cut slits in several places in top crust to allow steam to escape.
  3. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  4. In 1-quart saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter over low heat. Stir in brown sugar and half-and-half. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in pecans. Spread sauce over top of hot pie; sprinkle with remaining toffee bits. Cool on cooling rack 2 hours before serving.
