Directions

  1. Combine 1 cup flour and 1/8 teaspoon salt in bowl. Cut in 1/3 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in enough water with fork just until flour is moistened. Shape dough into ball; flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 30 minutes.
  2. Heat oven to 400°F.
  3. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place into ungreased 9-inch glass pie pan; unfold, pressing firmly against bottom and sides. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch from edge of pan; fold under. Crimp or flute edge.
  4. Combine pears and orange juice in bowl. Add 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon; stir to combine. Gently stir in raspberries. Spoon filling into prepared crust.
  5. Combine 1/2 cup flour, brown sugar and pecans in bowl. Cut in 1/4 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping evenly over filling, pressing down gently.
  6. Bake 45-55 minutes or until juice begins to bubble through edge. Cover with aluminum foil during last 15 minutes of baking, if crust is browning too quickly. Remove from oven; cool at least 2 hours on cooling rack.

Recipe Tips

- Frozen raspberries can be substituted for fresh berries.

- If your pears are very firm or under-ripe, place in paper bag at room temperature for a day or two. This will greatly improve the flavor of the pears.

I made this for company and it was a great hit! The mild flavor of the pears was contrasted by the bit of sour from the raspberries. Set up well too and that doesn't always happen for me. I can bake anything but do not consider myself a baker so this meant a lot to me. I usually follow the recipe strictly the first time and after that I may make adjustments. I might take out one pear and add raspberries to make up for it. I liked the punch of berry. Enjoy! It is a keeper!
