Shredded apple & pear pie

Apple pie with big chunks of apple are not a big hit here… But last year a friend brought Mike a SHREDDED apple & pear pie – and we loved it! ๐Ÿ™‚

So when my Dad gifted me two big boxes of apples and pears a couple weeks ago, I knew I needed to reserve some to try to re-create that pie. Mmmmm… ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s my recipe for two pies:

2 pounds of apples & 2 pounds of pears. [Peeled, cored, and shredded – which yielded about 8 cups of shredded fruit.]

Mix in:

2c (448g) evaporated cane juice
6T (60g) of King Arthur Unbleached Flour (KAUF)
1t cinnamon & 1t nutmeg
4 beaten eggs
8 oz. of melted butter
2t vanilla

I let it sit while I made my pie crust:

With a pastry blender, mix up 2c KAUF (242g) with 1t (7g) sea salt and 3/4c (156g) coconut oil. Once uniform crumbles are achieved, I add 5T cold water & incorporate it with the pastry blender. Then I use my hands & form 2 balls. After letting it rest a couple minutes, I roll each dough-ball out on a floured lint-free towel, line my stoneware pie pans, and flute the edges between my fingers.

Then I added half the previously prepared pie filling on top of each pie crust.

Baked the pies for 10 minutes at 400ยฐ, then 70 minutes at 350ยฐ.

We TRIED to allow it to cool completely before sampling it, but we failed, lol. ๐Ÿ™‚

We have kept them in the fridge, and they taste great cold, too! ๐Ÿ™‚
