 Ingredients List

  • 6 lg Spy apples
  • 1 lg Bartlett pear
  • 1/2 c Dried apricots
  • 2 ts Lemon juice
  • 1/3 c Granulated sugar
  • 2 tb Cornstarch
  • 1 ts Cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 c All-purpose flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/3 c Lard or unsalted butter,cold
  • -cut into bits
  • 1/4 c Unsalted butter, cold, cut
  • -into bits
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 c Water, cold


Preheat the oven to 400øF.

To make the filling, peel, core and slice the apples and pear. Chop the
apricots coarsely (scissors work well).

Mix the fruits together and then toss with the lemon juice, sugar,
cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Arrange in a 13 x 9 inch casserole or
baking dish (approximately 3 inches deep).

To make the pastry, combine the flour with the salt. Cut in the lard and
butter until they are in tiny pieces. Beat the egg with the water and
sprinkle enough over the pastry so that you can gather the dough into a
ball. Reserve the remaining egg mixture. Roll out the dough to fit the top
of the baking dish. Fit the pastry over the fruit mixture. Brush the top
with remaining egg wash and prick the dough with a fork.
