Pear is another fruit that is not thought of as a pie ingredient. The raisins in this recipe plump up from the pear juice and are the perfect complement!

Serves 10-12

1/3 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

In a bowl, combine the pears, raisins, sugar, lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of flour, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Transfer the mixture to the chilled piecrust.

Combine the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt in a small bowl. Add the butter and mix by hand, breaking up the butter, and forming a crumb topping. Top the pie with the crumbs.
