Pear Crisp

Pear Crisp

I bought the cutest little bag of Bartlett pears the other day at the store. I love Bartletts because they are sweet and juicy and you can just bite right into them. My kids love them for that reason too.

I knew right away that I wanted to bake with these little guys though. I wanted to make a pear crisp. I've made apple crisp a million times, but never pear crisp. So I took my original recipe and did some tweaking and came up with this delicious dessert.

I told you all awhile back that Greenwillow Grains was kind enough to send me a big box of their flours and grains to bake with. They didn't ask for anything in return, they just wanted me to try their goods. I tried them and I loved them! I still have a few things to try, but I love their Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and their Rolled Oats. I have made countless recipes with both and everything has turned out perfectly!

Greenwillow Grains, based in Brownsville, Oregon, is launching a brand new website on October 21st which will include an online store. When that launches, they will be shipping their products all over the US! If you have a chance, check them out and see what all they have to offer. You can visit their website here and their Facebook page here.

Ok, now back to my pear crisp! You'll find the recipe below. I, of course, used Greenwillow Grains products to make my crisp, however, you can use whatever you have on hand.

8 Bartlett pears, peeled and sliced
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp all purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 cup butter, cold and cut into cubes

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a 1 1/2 quart baking dish lightly with cooking spray.

In a large bowl combine the sliced pears, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon all purpose flour and mix gently. Transfer the pears to the prepared baking dish.

In a medium bowl make the topping. Combine the oats, brown sugar, flour and allspice and whisk together. Add the cold butter cubes and combine using a pastry blender or two forks. The mixture should resemble coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the topping all over the pears.

Bake the crisp for about 40 minutes, until the pears are tender and the topping is golden brown.

Remove from the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes or so before serving with ice cream or whipped cream.

Bon Appetit!
