My Favorite Easy Pear Crisp (gluten-free and regular recipes)
As pear desserts go, pear crisp is hands down the winner if you ask me, and this is my favorite easy pear crisp recipe. It's prepped in minutes, and after just a few more minutes it emerges browned and bubbling out of the oven just begging for a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
2poundsripe but firm pearsany variety, I used Bartlett
juice of half a lemon
1Tbspvanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
1cupflourany variety (use almond or oat flour, or a good gf baking mix for gluten free)
1/2cuppacked brown sugar
1cupfinely chopped walnuts
1/2cup1 stick unsalted butter, melted
Set the oven to 350F
Wash the pears, there is no need to peel them. Trim off the top and bottom, and slice in half, lengthwise. Scoop out the core, and chop into small chunks. Put in a bowl and toss with the lemon juice, sugar, and vanilla.
Add the dry topping ingredients to a bowl and toss with the melted butter until well combined. I used my (clean) hands to do this.
Put the fruit in the bottom of an 8x10 oval baking dish and spread out evenly. Top with the crumble mixture. It is ok to mound the fruit and topping a bit because there will be shrinkage in the oven.
Put the baking dish on a baking sheet to catch any juicy drips. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until browned on top and bubbling throughout. Cover loosely with foil if the topping seems to be browning too quickly.
