Pear Apple Crisp
I love all kinds of fruit dishes, and in the winter there's nothing better than a hot fruit dessert. I make lots of crisps and cobblers all year long actually. This one's a great combo of pears and apples and is absolutely delicious. Enjoy!


  • 3 ripe pears, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (about 3 1/2 cups) 
  • 2 tart apples, such as Granny Smith, Jonathon, or Greening, peeled,cored and sliced (about 2 1/2 cups) 
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice 
  • 2 tbsp. bourbon, applejack, brandy or apple cider 
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract 
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1/3 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice 
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon 
  • 2 tbsp.unsalted butter or margarine, chilled 
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Vanilla Ice Cream (optional)
  • Caramel Sauce (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the pears, apples, lemon juice, bourbon, and vanilla. Transfer to a 9 inch pie plate.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, stir together the flour, sugar , cinnamon and allspice. With a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, then stir in vegetable oil.
  4. Spoon the mixture on top of the fruit. Bake 30 minutes, then remove from the oven and spoon some of the juice over the topping.
  5. Serve with ice cream and caramel sauce, if desired.
