Pear Crisp

I’ve been wanting to make a crisp for sometime. I use to make the one from the Betty Crocker book, but since going vegan, I just couldn’t get it to taste “right”. I was stoked when I came across a post by Kathy Hester . Pears, oatmeal, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg. Can you smell the flavour already?! I knew when I was reading it, I could smell it. In fact if I was to sell a house, I’d whip one of these up before the viewings started.

This dish just takes your mind away and for me, I thought about happy childhood memories, sneaking down to shake Santa’s gifts before my parents woke up, or laughing with my brother while drinking a hot chocolate with whipped cream moustache’s placing bets on who’s marshmallows would melt the fastest, or trying to walk up a small ice covered hill, we kept falling down and laughing at each other. That’s right at each other and not with each other.

I had to sample this hot out of the oven- but when the kids go to bed, I’m going to put ice cream on it. I’m just not sharing tonight lol

I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I am. I used a mixture of pears and Granny Smith apples and didn’t use any more agave (I don’t really like sweet fruit for a crisp) Click on Kathy’s name if you already haven’t for the full recipe 🙂

What is your favourite fruit for a crisp?
