Fresh Pear Crisp

Fresh Pear Crisp

"Mildred Sherrer's comforting fruit crisp is a pared-down version of one her mother used to fix. 'I made it healthier by using reduced-fat margarine, fresh pears instead of canned and oats for some of the flour,' she explains from Fort Worth, Texas. As a finishing touch, she suggests topping it with fat-free yogurt or whipped cream."

This was very good and very easy, I've made it twice and it works as it is written. The second time I made it with a little extra sugar (extra tablespoon) and cinnamon (heaping teaspoon) which ...

Great taste, but you have to bake the pears a really long time for them to soften up. I felt like the crumble got a little too dark because of it.

I too added some apples to this recipe, stuck with almonds and oatmeal in the streusel and it was so delicious. Of course, I NEVER use margarine! Butter is better and better for you.

Fabulous! I am making a double helping next time so it will last longer than 30 minutes!

Tastes good to me! I didn't use any lemon though, and the pears didn't turn brown.

Pretty yummy. Needed more ginger I thought. Great way to use up a few gone off pears in the bottom of my fruit bowl.

I made this in ramekins and it turned out great. My husband and I loved it. I used three fresh Bartlet pears.

Yup, good. But I think you could double the pear and be fine. It was a little thin/shallow for my liking. Otherwise, taste was great.

Husband loved it!! That's what counts!
