Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Made  times

"This is a variation of the traditional Apple Crisp that I dreamed up one day when I didn't have enough apples, and there were pears in the fruit bowl, and leftover toasted walnuts from something else. We love it. Cranberries can be substituted with raisins or dried cherries. Comice pears taste best with this recipe."

This was a great recipe-I used Golden Delicious apples when I made it. Next time I make it, I will definitely serve it with vanilla ice cream.

We enjoyed this crisp and it is simple to make, but I think next time I will use fewer cranberries and nuts. There are a lot of flavors and textures going on here. My husband said "this is goo...

This recipe is by far the best one I've tried for a Crisp. It has just the right amount of everything- I once mixed dried cherries in as well. Everyone I have served this to has loved it- even...

I tried this recipe for our office Christmas dinner and it was wonderful! Very easy, flavorful, fruity and not too sweet. I added a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. Thank you!

Even though I used what I had on hand (very ripe bartlett pears, gala apples, and extremely dessicated dried cranberries), it turned out quite tasty. Next time, I'll try some baking apples, fir...
