  • Summary

    Inspired by apple pie with salted caramel recipe from The Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book that is a family favorite of ours. The flaky, buttery crust (yes really!) is filled with sweet pears and bright tart cranberries, a perfect union for some very good pie and even better with a good drizzle of rich caramel on top!

    Ingredients

    • For the pie crust:
    • 1 package Bob’s Red Mill GF Pie Crust
    • 8 tablespoons (4 oz) organic palm shortening, cut up into pieces
    • 12 tablespoons (6 oz) earth balance soy free spread, cut into pieces
    • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
    • 7 tablespoons ice water (I leave more like ½ cup in a measuring cup with an ice cube, for easy measuring at the counter)
    • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons cane sugar, divided
    • ¼ cup water
    • 4 ounces (1 stick) non-dairy soy free butter (I use Earth Balance)
    • ½ cup coconut creamer, original flavor (I use So Delicious brand)
    • juice of 2 small lemons (about 2 tablespoons)
    • 7-8 pears (1½ pounds), Bosc, Comice, and or Seckel varieties - I used Bosc and Comice
    • 3 cups fresh cranberries (1½ pounds)
    • 2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
    • ½ cup cane or raw sugar
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
    • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    • pinch of crushed black pepper
    • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
    • ¼ cup potato starch (tapioca or arrowroot starch work too)
    • “Egg” Wash (3 tablespoons melted Earth Balance buttery spread with 3 teaspoons coconut milk)
    • Demerara sugar
