How to make it

  • First, you KNOW you can buy a crust OR make your own recipe. That said, here's The Pie Lady's crust:
  • CRUST:
  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat to 350 degrees F.
  • Sift flour and salt into a large bowl.
  • Cut the shortening and butter into the flour until mix resembles coarse meal.
  • Sprinkle in ice water a tablespoon at a time and toss with a fork, stirring until dough gathers into a ball.
  • Transfer to a lightly floured pastry cloth.
  • Flatten slightly with your hand.
  • Roll dough with rolling pin to a 14" circle.
  • Turn dough into a 9" pie plate.
  • Fold edges over and flute as desired.
  • Set aside.
  • FILLING:
  • Combine sliced pears with tapioca, orange zest, cinnamon lemon juice and salt.
  • Gently mix the sugar and raspberries into the pear mixture.
  • TOPPING:
  • Combine flour and sugar in a large bowl and cut in butter until mixture is in small pieces.
  • Add the coconut and mix gently to combine.
  • Transfer the pear mixture into the unbaked pie shell and sprinkle with topping.
  • Bake for about 50 to 60 minutes until juices are bubbling and topping is golden brown.
