Top Review by Mommy2two

I really liked the idea of an apple and pear crisp, but this did not work out for me. I made exactly as directed, but after cooking as directed, the apples and pears were very firm and gave off so much liquid that it was kind of a hard fruit soup. I tried cooking longer, but it didn't help. The flavor was good, but it didn't work out for us.
