Apple-Pear Pie

Yet another of the Thanksgiving desserts. This is a simple variant of my own on the ubiquitous apple pie, and I don't believe recipes that say you can get by with only six apples. (Well, yes, you can but those make very flat pies.) I used one pear for every two apples, which, after peeling, coring, and slicing, came to proportions of one part pear to three parts apple. Enough to add some additional flavour and mellowness, and to reduce the amount of sugar needed.
