  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and apple pie spice. Cut in 1/2 cup butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like rolled oats. Stir in 3 tablespoons granulated sugar and the brown sugar; set aside.
  • 2
    Peel and core apples. Cut into quarters, then cut each quarter crosswise in half. Repeat with pears. In 4-quart Dutch oven, combine 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice. Heat over medium heat until butter is melted; stir in apples. Partly cover; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Add pears; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes, depending on ripeness of pears. In small bowl, mix remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice, the cornstarch and cinnamon; add to fruit mixture. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened.
  • 4
    Spoon fruit mixture into ungreased 9 1/2-inch glass deep-dish pie plate. Spoon topping evenly over fruit. Place pie plate on cookie sheet.
  • 5
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and fruit is bubbly. Serve warm or cool.

Expert Tips

  • "A similar combination of apples and pears was introduced to me a long time ago in the kitchen of a friend from Nice. It’s what my family demands just as soon as summer heat gives way to cool weather, when warming the kitchen with a hot oven is welcome. Our Golden Delicious apple is similar to the one my friend uses in France." Lily Julow
  • Select heavy lemons, which contain more juice. One medium lemon contains about 3 tablespoons juice, so you will need 2 lemons for this recipe.
