This recipe is easy and tasty. I used splends instead of sugar and a fruit mixture that is a butter substitute. This made this recipe suitable for those on a diet and wanting a nice crisp!!

Easy and good--- Gets my vote. I've made it twice with the fresh pears that are available now.

This was so delicious and such a nice change from apple crisp. We had lots of pears from our tree to use and it was a perfect solution! I made one mistake though -- I completely forgot to add the white sugar to the pear mixture! I guess the sweetness of the pears or added ice cream compensated because we really didn't miss it. The topping was just wonderful. Thanks so much.
