Alright...I changed a few things such as I added plums to my pie. I had to add a little more flour to the apple, pear, plum combo as the pears were very juicy. I added brown sugar instead of plain white sugar to the apple combo. It took 50 minutes and was absolutely delicious. Will make again!

This is a great pie!!! I did change it a bit. I used refridgerated pie crust. I had some apples and pears leftover from picking and it turned out awesome. I did not use the walnuts as I cannot have nuts. This has become a family favorite very fast. Thanks for the recipe!!
