Apple Pear Pie with Ginger
By Elizabeth Terry, Executive-Chef/Owner, Elizabeth on 37th, Savannah GA; Author, Savannah Seasons, Food and Stories From Elizabeth on 37th (Doubleday)

"On Mother's Day, I bake her favorite apple pear pie. I am always amazed to watch such a small woman eat such a large slice of pie with vanilla ice cream."

  • 1 batch of your favorite pie crust for a double crust pie
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca granules
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 pears, peeled, quartered, core discarded, and sliced
  • 3 large apples, peeled, quartered, core discarded, and sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large sauce pan over high heat, combine the sugar, tapioca, cornstarch, ginger, cinnamon, lemon juice and pears. Bring to a boil while stirring, then cook about 3 minutes, constantly stirring until slightly thick and shinny. Remove from the fire, stir in the apples. Cool and spoon into the chilled pie shell. Top with lattice cut crust then bake 50 minutes in the middle of the oven, until the fruit bubbles and the crust is browned. Cool before cutting.
