Cranberry Pear Crisp

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min.


8 servings

I don’t recall just where I found it, but it’s been a family favorite for at least 20 years. A dollop of sweet, fat-free frozen yogurt tames the tartness of juicy cranberries. For variation, you could also substitute apples for the pears and blueberries or strawberries for the tangy cranberries. —Ruth Fox, Elmhurst, Illinois

  • 1 package (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
  • 2 large pears, peeled and sliced
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar
