12 large firm Bosc pears, peeled and sliced
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrusts
1 large egg
1 tablespoon water


Toss sliced pears with brown sugar and flour.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add pear mixture, and cook, stirring often, 10 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, and stir in pecans, ginger, and lemon rind.

Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.

Roll piecrusts to press out fold lines; cut into 1/2-inch strips. Arrange strips in a lattice design over filling. Reroll remaining strips and scraps. Cut leaf shapes from piecrust using a small 1-inch leaf-shaped cookie cutter. Use a paring knife to gently score designs in leaves, if desired. Arrange leaf shapes around inner edge of the baking dish, forming a decorative border over ends of lattice.

Whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush over piecrust.

Bake at 425° for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
