Apple Pear Crisp

Warm fruit crisps are the perfect dessert for cool early winter nights. While I love baking pies, a crisp is a 'quick pie'.
  • 6 cups of a combination of peeled and chopped apples and pears
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp flour
  1. Wash, peel and chop fruit.
  2. Melt together butter and honey. Pour over fruit and stir to coat.
  3. Stir together cinnamon and flour. Stir into fruit until fruit is coated.
  4. Place this mixture into a well buttered pie plate.
Crumble Topping:
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  1. Stir together dry ingredients.
  2. Using a pastry blender cut in butter until the size of peas.
  3. Sprinkle over fruit mixture.
  4. Bake in 375ยบ oven for 35-40 minutes, or until fruit is tender when poked and juices are bubbling, and crumble is golden crisp.
