Pear Crisp

This is a great dessert to prepare if you have canned alot of pears this past summer. I have 48 jars of pears sitting in the pantry waiting to be eaten and I used 3 jars for this dessert. It was very tasty and unlike most pears, this dessert did not taste grainy like pears texture can get. It was very refreshing heated up with vanilla ice cream and would make a great winter dessert to warm a person up. Here is the recipe:

Pear Crisp

5 cups sliced pears
3 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger
1/4 cup butter (margarine will work, but butter tastes better)
1/4 cup chopped nuts or coconut

Place fruit (undrained) in a round baking dish, stir in sugar. For topping, mix together oats, brown sugar, flour, and spice of choice. Cut in butter (or margarine) till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts or coconut. Sprinkle topping over filling. Bake in 375 oven for 30-35 minutes or till fruit is tender and topping is golden brown.

Serving Suggestions:
- Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or light cream (such as half and half).
