Holiday pie

Make 3-2-1 pie dough from scratch
three parts flour, two parts butter, one part salted water … And a little bit of sugar

Start dried cherries and/ or raisins cooking in sauté pan in Brandy, molasses and Karo syrup.
Let simmer for 10 minutes until brandy evaporates

Mixed together pie dough being careful not to overmix
Wrapped in plastic and set aside for 30 minutes
Roll out to 1/8 inch thick.

Asian pears . Or other pair specifically selected for low moisture content and ability to withstand heat from baking
Toss in honey . Then in cinnamon, ground cloves, scant salt

This is the recipe from Sonoran living
Place pears in center of pie dough
Poor brandied cherries over-the-top allowing to spill over the inch

This is my adaptation
Mixed pears and brandied cherries very lightly
Pour mixture into center of pie dough

Fold edges up leaving some of the fruit showing through the top

Sprinkle top with crumbled cookies
Bake at about 350° for 30 minutes or until dough has finished browning

Cookie crumbles
