Grandma's Pear Pie


INGREDIENTS

-CRUST-

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup shortening

6 tablespoons cold water


-FILLING- 5 cups sliced peeled fresh pears

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons butter


DIRECTIONS

PREHEAT OVEN TO 425 DEGREES

In a large bowl, mix flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight. In a large bowl, toss pears with lemon juice. In a small bowl, mix flour, 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon; add to pear mixture and toss to coat. On a lightly floured surface, roll half of dough into an 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust even with rim. Add filling; dot with butter. Roll remaining dough into a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Cut slits in top. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 45-50 minutes. Cover edge loosely with foil during the last 20 minutes if needed to prevent over-browning. Remove foil. Cool on a wire rack.
