  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 3 to 3 1/2 tablespoons ice water
  • Cooking spray
  • Filling:
  • 5 cups thinly sliced peeled pear (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons uncooked quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind

  1. To prepare crust, lightly spoon 1 cup flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine flour and salt in a bowl; cut in 3 tablespoons butter and shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add enough ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork until dough is moist. Gently press dough into a 4-inch circle on heavy-duty plastic wrap, and cover with additional plastic wrap. Chill 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°.
  3. Roll dough, still covered, into a 12-inch circle. Remove 1 sheet of plastic wrap; fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Remove top sheet of plastic wrap. Fold edges of dough under; flute.
  4. To prepare filling, combine pear and cranberries in a large bowl. Add 2/3 cup sugar and next 5 ingredients (through nutmeg), tossing well to combine. Spoon pear mixture into crust.
  5. To prepare topping, lightly spoon 1/4 cup flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, oats, and cinnamon in a bowl; cut in 2 tablespoons butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle topping over pear filling.
  6. Cover loosely with foil; bake at 400° for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Let stand 20 minutes before serving.
