In El Sobrante, California, Billie Moss uses time-saving apple pie filling and a convenient pastry shell crust for this scrumptious pie. Dressed up with a crunchy streusel topping, it’s a sweet afternoon pick-me-up or dinnertime finale.
This fruit pie, brimming with apples and pears, really says "fall." What a yummy way to use your backyard bounty or the pickings from local orchards! I've made plenty of pies over the years, and this is a real standout. —Grace Camp, Owingsville, Kentucky
