    pdxjosh's Note:

    We get fruit and vegetables delivered to us weekly, and for the past few months, it has always included pears. I like to make them into a crisp. This recipe is the bare-bones pear crisp that I make when I'm in a hurry. It's tasty, but I feel like I'm cheating for using granola.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 -5 pears (any variety)
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 cup granola cereal (any variety will do, but I like vanilla almond)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup oil (or 5 Tbsp butter or margarine)
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
    • 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger (optional)
    • 1 lemon, juice of (optional)


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Grease a 5x9-inch pan.
    3. 3
      Peel the pears and cut the flesh into 1/4-1/2 inch slices.
    4. 4
      Make a layer in the bottom of the pan.
    5. 5
      If you are using the ginger and/or lemon juice, combine those with the pears and toss to coat.
    6. 6
      Mix all other ingredients (including cinnamon, if desired) in a large bowl.
    7. 7
      If using butter or margarine, cut them in until there are no large pieces.
    8. 8
      If using oil, add enough liquid (water, lemon juice, milk, soy milk, etc.) to make the mixture hold together into clumps (about a tablespoon). It should still be a bit grainy.
    9. 9
      Spread the granola mixture in an even layer over the pears and bake for 30-45 minutes.
    10. 10
      If you'd like the top to be brown, turn the oven up to 400°F for the last ten minutes of the cooking time.

      This is a very good Pear Crisp recipe. Taste better than all the other Pear Crisp recipes that I have tried. I like using the granola cereal. The taste is superb.
