After making a few changes to the original recipe, I popped my version of the seasonal fruit crisp into the oven and set about my housework. OH MY GOODNESS it smelled so good while it was baking... I couldn't wait to stick my spoon in and try it!
Apple, Pear, and Cranberry Crisp
based on a recipe via allrecipes.com
(makes 8 servings)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup butter (I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8 inch baking dish.
Mix the apples, pears, cranberries, 1 tablespoon flour, honey, cinnamon and lemon juice in the prepared dish.
In a bowl, mix 1/4 cup flour, brown sugar, oats, and butter to the consistency of coarse crumbs.
Sprinkle loosely over the fruit mixture.
Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until brown and crisp on top.
Apple, Pear, and Cranberry Crisp is a fantastic fall dessert... and it even tastes like fall! The blend of warm seasonal fruit and cinnamon topped with a crispy, buttery topping is comfort-food, fall-dessert perfection. It will leave your house smelling AMAZING. Oh and the best part.... it's made with mostly fresh fruits and oats, so it's on the healthier side (as far as desserts go!).
