Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Recipe by  

"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."

Complete silence descended on the table as folks dug in to this dessert! It was so delicious for fall. I changed a couple things--added 2 extra pears, so therefore increased the rest of the ingredients (except apples) by 50%. I didn't have walnuts, so used pecans. One tip is to mix the topping ingredients in the food processor--just pulse until it looks like coarse crumbs--fast and easy.

There was was too much butter in this. I would have put in at least half the called for amount. The bottom of my baking pan was half an inch deep with melted butter! I would have preferred the topping to be more dry and crunchy. Just an opinion, but for anyone else that feels the same... I also added a little vanilla to the fruit mixture, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice. I also added some blueberries. Other than the butter problem, it came out deliciously and I would definitely make it again, just without that much butter. Thanks for the recipe!

A VERY good crisp recipe. Feel free to play around with the ingredients. I followed the suggestion of other reviewers and added 1 tsp. each of cinnamon and nutmeg. I also added orange juice and orange zest. This is one of those recipes that I don't feel you can go wrong with. Enjoy!!

Nice combination - I like the different textures of apple and pear (I used Granny Smith and D'Anjou because that's what I had). Needs some spices, though, cinnamon, nutmeg or a combination. I've tweaked this several times and my favorite included cinnamon in the topping, pecans instead of walnuts and I used fresh cranberries, not dried. I spiced & sweetened them up by simmering 1 cup cranberries in about 3/4 cup water, the honey and a cinnamon stick and a couple strips of orange peel studded with whole cloves. Stirred that mixture (removing stick, peel & cloves) in with the apples and pears.

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.

I've tried many crisp recipes but this one's right up there at the top. I used fresh raspberries instead of cranberries as that's what I had on hand. I like the idea of cubing the fruit instead of slicing it. I found the fruit held its shape nicely and didn't turn into mush. The crumb topping was flavourful and definitely added to the taste of the dessert. Next time, I'll make a double batch!

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 good, but I like plain apple crisp better"

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!
