Have a "Peary, Berry" Christmas

I know it's Christmas time, but if you're in the mood
for a "summerish" pie for the holidays... this is a keeper.


Sweet, tart combination. So yummy!


3-4 pears
1 container of blueberries (about 2 cups)
1 container of raspberries (about 2 cups)
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Pre-made pie crust
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 stick of butter
1/4 cup milk

1.) Cut up the pears, and add the raspberries, blueberries, lemon zest and
juice to a bowl.

2.) Add 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg to the bowl
and mix together.

Place the fruit mixture inside the pre-made pie crust.

Cut up 3/4 of the stick of butter, and place on TOP of the fruit.

3.) Place the other pre-made pie crust on top of the fruit.

In a separate bowl, melt the remainder of the butter.
Add 1/4 cup of milk to the mixture.

Using a cooking brush, cover the top of the pie with the butter/milk mixture.

Cut a slit in the top of the pie.

Place in a 350 degree preheated oven for 50-60 minutes.

Let the pie cool for about 1 hour.

When you dig in, the sweetness of the pears, combined with the
tart flavors of the blueberries and raspberries is deliciousssss!

Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make it even better :)
