Pear Crisp

I had a couple of pears in the fridge and looked up pear crisps online. I found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman’s website. I halved the recipe, so here are the ingredients I used below:


2 cups pears (peeled, cored, and diced)

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/8 tsp salt

For the topping:

1 cup flour

1/6 cup granulated sugar

1/6 cup light brown sugar

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/2 stick butter, melted

1/4 cup chopped walnuts (she uses pecans in her recipe, but I didn’t have any)


Preheat the oven to 350F. In a bowl, stir the diced pears with the 1/3 cup granulated sugar and salt. Set aside.

In another bowl, mix together the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans. Drizzle the melted butter on top and stir well.

Pour the pears into a baking dish sprayed with cooking oil. Top with the crumb mixture.

Bake for 30 minutes on the middle rack. Bake for an additional 10 minutes (I baked it for 20) on the top rack for a golden brown crust.
