Pear Crisp Recipe
Meet the Cook: Since he's a livestock truck driver, my husband often starts work around 2 or 3 a.m. A piece of this crisp will keep him going till breakfast. And our two boys - ages 10 and 7 - love to have it for dessert and in their school lunches. -Joanne Korevaar, Burgessville, Ontario
