Ingredients

6
cups thinly sliced peeled Granny Smith apples
3
cups thinly sliced peeled pears
3/4
cup granulated sugar
1/4
cup all-purpose flour
2
to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon salt
1
box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1
tablespoon all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1 1/2
cups (1 bag - 8 oz) almond brickle or toffee bits
1/2
cup butter or margarine
1
cup packed brown sugar
1/4
cup half-and-half
1
cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. 1 Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. 2 In large bowl, gently toss apples, pears, granulated sugar, 1/4 cup flour, the cinnamon and salt. Let stand 15 minutes. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch deep-dish glass pie plate; sprinkle lightly with 1 tablespoon flour. Spoon apple mixture into pastry-lined pie plate; dot with 2 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the almond brickle. Top with second pie crust. Flute edges as desired. Cut slits in several places in top crust to allow steam to escape.
  3. 3 Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until golden brown; remove pie from oven. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter over low heat. Stir in brown sugar and half-and-half. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in pecans. Spread sauce over top of hot pie; sprinkle with remaining almond brickle. Cool 2 hours before serving.
