Here's a recipe for Holiday Pear and Cranberry Pie from the 1974 American
Family Cookbook.

Holiday Pear and Cranberry Pie

Pastry for 2-crust pie
2 fresh winter pears, cored (do not pear) and sliced 1 1/2 cups fresh
cranberries, rinsed and sorted 1 cup cugar
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca

1. Using one half the pastry, line a 9-inch pie pan and flute the pastry edge.
Roll out remaining pastry. Using a paper cutout of a pear tree with pears and
a partridge, cut the tree from the pastry.
2. Combine pears and cranberries with remaining ingredients; mix well and spoon
into pie shell. Carefully place the pear tree cutout over the pie filling.
3. Bake at 400 degrees F about 40 minutes, or until fruit is tender and pie
crust is light golden brown.
