I made this exactly as the recipe states and it was delicious. We ate it with sweetened whipping cream. I've used a lot of different recipes for fruit crisp but this one has the perfect ratio of topping to fruit. This is a keeper.
This is very good! I used part apples and part pears, both of which were a little "past their prime", however, it turned out great! One of my friends insisted I put MORE topping on and that did become a little thick. I preferred mine without ice cream, but my friends preferred vanilla ice cream with it. Great, light, comforting dessert to our Christmas dinner :)
'Nice thing about this dish is that you can vary which fruit you use according to your audience, what is in season. I have combined apples, pears, cranberries & peaches. Rhubarb adds a nice touch, too. Delicious! Ken from Milwaukee.
My neighbor gave me 8 pears the other afternoon and found this recipes. Need 8 pears :) We topped it off with an extra special treat, vanilla ice cream.
Made this last night and everyone from family, friends and neighbors managed to eat it all up. I'm going to make some 8x8 tin foil pans to stock up the freeer; so yummy.
