"Part of him wanted nothing so much as to hear Bran laugh again, to sup on one of Gage’s beef- and- bacon pies, to listen to Old Nan tell her tales of the children of the forest and Florian the Fool." — A Game of Thrones

We followed the recipe from A Propre New Booke of Cokery, simply swapping some thick- cut bacon in for the original marrow and letting the rest of the recipe be. The sweetness of the pie comes from the fruit, which dissolves as it cooks, providing a satisfying counterpoint to the tart vinegar and salty bacon. Then the fruit flavor fades into the background, and what remains is a sweet, rich meat pie with an easy medley of flavors.
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
