Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 190oC/375oF/Gas 5. Roll out half of the pastry and use it to line a 23 cm tin that is about 5cm deep.
  • Combine the pears, caster sugar, flour and lemon rind. Toss to coat the fruit. Mix in the raisins, nuts and cinnamon. Put the filling into the pastry case and spread it evenly.
  • Roll out the remaining pastry and use to make a lattice top. Bake the pie for 55 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown on top.
  • Combine the icing sugar, lemon juice and water in a bowl and stir until smooth. Remove the pie from the oven. Drizzle the glaze evenly over the top, on the pastry and filling. Leave the pie to cool in its tins on a wire rack.
