Pear Crisp

November 5, 2012 by 13 Comments

Quick and easy recipes always get my vote.  Like this one from Paula Deen – Pear Crisp, perfect for this time of year.  Just so happened that I had some fresh pears on hand that needed some attention but you could use apples instead.

So yummy ~  fresh out of the oven….some ice cream or whip cream would really top it off!


6 large pears (about 2 1/2 lbs) peeled, cored and thinly sliced

1/2  cup warm water

1  lemon, juiced

2  cups rolled oats

2  cups all purpose flour

2  cups brown sugar

2  TBSP ground cinnamon

2 1/2 sticks butter, melted



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Combine pears, water and lemon juice in a 8 x 8-inch baking pan.  In a bowl combine oats, flour, sugar and cinnamon.  Pour in melted butter and stir to make a crumbly mixture.  Spread the topping evenly over the fruit.  Bake for 45 – 55 minutes or until the topping is crisp and browned.


I’m so happy you stopped by…..have a wonderful week!

    This sounds so yummy! I’m pinning it and will get to making it hopefully soon! My son has a dairy allergy so I will use Smart Balance or something similar, but now I’m wondering if you think coconut oil would work in this recipe. Any ideas about how that would do flavor-wise?
