Ingredients

Pate Brisee:

Directions

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine apples and pears in a large bowl. Add flour, sugar, nutmeg, lemon juice, and zest, and mix. Add cranberries, and toss gently; set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a rough 18-inch circle, about 1/8-inch thick. Line a 12-inch pie plate with dough.

Transfer apple and pear mixture to pastry-lined pie plate. Dot the top with butter. Fold the pastry over the fruit. Brush pastry with cream. Sprinkle sugar evenly over the top of pie. Transfer to a silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F; continue to bake until juices are bubbling, about 1 1/2 hours more.

Pate Brisee:

In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Add the butter, and process for approximately 10 seconds, or just until the mixture resembles a course meal. (To mix by hand, combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender or 2 table knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.)

Add water, drop by drop, through the feed tube with the machine running, just until the dough holds together without being wet or sticky; do not process more than 30 seconds. Test the dough at this point by squeezing a small amount together. If it is crumbly, add a bit more water.

Turn the dough out onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Grasping the ends of the plastic wrap with your hands, press the dough into a flat circle with your fists. This makes rolling easier than if the pastry is chilled as a ball. Wrap the dough in the plastic and chill for at least 1 hour.

Yield: 2 (8 to 10-inch) single crusts
