Pear Crisp Recipe

If you like easy to make crisp recipes, you will want to try this easy, fresh blackberry crisp recipe or perhaps this fabulous fresh strawberry rhubarb crisp recipe. Why do I mention “fresh”? Because fresh berries and rhubarb are used. You could certainly try frozen, but nothing beats fresh!!


You may be wondering:

What is the difference between a cobbler and a crisp?

Well, the difference between a cobbler and crisp is in the topping. A crisp is a baked fruit dessert with a crunchy topping such as nuts, granola, oats, or muesli. A cobbler is is a baked fruit dessert, but it has a dough topping – such as flour, bisquick, pie dough, or biscuits!

What toppings can be used for a crisp?

Most commonly used topping on a crisp dessert recipe are oats, granola, or nuts. In this wonderful pear fruit crisp recipe, I use muesli – simply fabulous!

Pear Crisp Recipe Notes:

• This recipe used Muesli, you can use granola or quick rolled oats as a substitution if you like.

• You can substitute Splenda for sugar.

I use a pastry cutter to cut-in butter with dough/flour to make the pebble consistency. You can use two butter knife and keep cutting the butter over and over and over again until you achieve the pebbles. Honestly? I used that method for 30+ years. The pastry cutter is much faster and easier, but the 2-butter-knives-method does work.
