1 c. sugar
2 T. instant tapioca, uncooked
2 T. cornstarch
1 T. lemon juice
1 T. butter
½ t. ground ginger
½ t. cinnamon
6 Bartlett or Anjou pears, peeled, cored and sliced

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, combine all ingredients except pie crusts. Bring to a boil while stirring. Cook, constantly stirring, for about 3 minutes, until slightly thickened. Remove from heat; cool. Arrange one crust in a 9" pie plate; spoon pear filling into crust. Cover with remaining crust; crimp to seal and cut slits to vent. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.
