Apple Pear Crumb Pie

This is one of our favorite dessert recipes for the holidays. I saw it in a Food Now! article a couple of years ago and since then it has been out go-to pie recipe. The pears add a nice flavor, and it’s great to be able to mix things up a little bit!


  • ¼ cup oats
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg


  • 2 ½ cups granny smith apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups pears, peeled and sliced
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs. flour
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1 (9”) deep dish pie shell, unbaked

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. With the mixer on low, combine the topping ingredients until the butter is the size of peas. Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the filling ingredients until the apples and pears are completely coated. Pour into the pie shell. The filling should mount above the top of the shell.

Evenly distribute the topping over the filling.

Bake the pie at 375 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes or until the filling is completely cooked. Depending on how your oven bakes, you might need to cover the crust edges with foil to prevent overbrowning.
