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.

My dh & I enjoyed this very much. We didn't find it too sweet, but I didn't use the entire 1/3 cup of caramel topping. This crisp was quick and easy to make, sweet, tart and subtley spicy. Thanks for sharing.

I really liked these, but my son and husband said they were too sweet (uncharacteristic of them). I think next time I will omit the layer of caramel on top of the fruit mixture. Will definitely use this recipe again!
