Cranberry Pear Crisp

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by appleydapply

This yummy fall recipe comes from the food section of the Oregonian newspaper. It is written for fresh or frozen cranberries, not dried. I have increased the amount of orange juice to 1/2 cup based on a review - I made the dish with the new, increased amount, and it was perfect. Because it's somewhat tart, I prefer serving with vanilla ice cream, but sweetened whipped cream is good, too.

This is a delicious crisp. I stirred one tablespoon of corn starch into the orange juice just to make sure the filling would thicken (probably not necessary, but it worked). I will be making this next cranberry season!
