Submitted by: Janis Parr, Ontario, Canada

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
2 9-inch pie crusts
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. Reduce heat to 325 degrees; continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes, until fruit bubbles and crust is golden. Cool before serving. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
