We have our own pear trees so I am often looking for pear dessert recipes. This is one of my husband's favorites.
I made this crisp and the adjustments were: adding 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg to the topping mixture before cutting in the butter. I used 10 medium Bosc pears, peeled and thinly sliced. I'd mixed pears, orange juice, sugar and spices together before putting in a greased and floured 13x9x2" baking pan. The baking time was kept as is! This crisp came out very nicely! delowenstein
This is an excellent and easy recipe to make. You could really use any kind of fruit in it. I didn't have orange juice so I substituted lemon juice instead. Great taste, thanks!
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.
This is absolutely delicious!! My neighbor wants to buy them from me to give at Christmas. They said it is even good partially frozen
Very tasty. Easy to prepare.
