Viscous Apple and Pear Pie

With apples and pears- what’s not a great way to start off summer! Hot food goes well with heat- though you can always add ice cream to make it better! Though it’s not really that common to have a pastry layer in the middle. We did this to add a gooey viscously delicious layer to the apple and pear pie. Along with this, it creates a border for the pear and apples to coexist together. Here is the Viscous Apple and Pear Pie.

Viscous Apple and Pear Pie Recipe

You can always omit the pastry layer in the middle if you’re not interested in the gooey texture. Make sure that the pastry isn’t too dry or the pie will end up falling apart at the end. Along with this- make sure that it’s not too wet as well.
