How to make Pear Crisp

Prep Time: 20 mins

Cook Time: 45 mins

Yields: 4 servings


  • 4 Hale Groves pears
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal


  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees F and butter a baking dish.
  2. Peel the pears, cut in half, and then use a spoon or a melon baller to remove core/seeds. Slice lengthwise into about 6 to 8 smaller pieces.
  3. Place cut pears in a bowl and toss with the vanilla extract.
  4. To the bowl of pears, add 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, toss again to coat pears well. Place coated pears in baking dish.
  5. In a bowl combine the butter, the remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar, the remaining 1/2 cup all purpose flour, the remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon, salt and oatmeal. Use your hands to mix if needed to incorporate butter well with the other ingredients.
  6. Spread mixture over the pears in the baking dish and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until pears are very tender, and the top has browned. Be sure to check pears for tenderness and increase cook time by a few minutes at a time until done.
