1. Peel the apples and pears.

2. Core the apples and pears using one of two methods:

-use a coring tool (a hollow cylinder that scoops out the seeds and pit)

-cut the apples and pears into quarters, and with a paring knife, cut out just the rough parts and seeds in a little half circle

3. Slice the fruit into thin slices- about five to six slices per quarter piece of fruit.

4. Toss with the rum raisin mixture.

Step 4: Fill the Pie Crust

1. Pull the pie crust from the fridge and carefully roll out- it will be sticky! Use flour on your fingers if needed.

2. Line a disposable pie tin or home pie pan . If using a home pan, grease first with butter, then flour!

3. Carefully press the dough into the pan. If the dough breaks, overlap the dough. Fold the edges under, and press gently.

4. Evenly spread the filling, then create a gradual dome.
