Warm your belly and bring a smile to your face with this delicious recipe for Easy Apple Pear Crisp. Enjoy a new twist on a classic favorite dessert.
Fall is my favorite time of the year, hands down! The weather is so much more forgiving here in Florida and that makes all the difference in the world. In other places, people already have their coats, boots and gloves on but here in the Sunshine State we are hanging strong at a cool, crisp 93 DEGREES!!! .. and did I mention we have a hurricane barreling down on us right now??? Seriously??? With this state being the epitome of anti-seasonal, that’s all the more reason to embrace the fall mindset within, even if the changing leaves and cooler weather ignore us Floridians completely. So while my air conditioner is on High and I am sitting here in shorts and flip flops, this recipe is for the rest of you friends that actually get to enjoy the change in the weather. And what better way to get into the spirit than an Easy Apple Pear Crisp to warm your belly and bring a smile to your face?
I know, I know … I’m complaining about my Pina Colada melting and you are breaking your back shoveling snow. We each have our own struggles.
But trust me, scarfing down this Easy Apple Pear Crisp is not one of them! I had no idea making a homemade apple crisp could be so easy and so painfully scrumptious right out of my very own oven. I say ‘painfully’ because guess who couldn’t wait for the crisp to cool down slightly .. from the temperature of molten lava?… (sigh) #burnedtongue
So while you are out with that big shovel clearing out your driveway from four foot of new fallen snow, know that you will have a hot, sweet, crunchy reward waiting for you inside. Did I mention that I double crisped this recipe? Is that even a thing… double crisped? Oh well, it is now! I don’t know about you but my favorite part is always the topping so when this recipe for Easy Apple Pear Crisp came to life, well, I just had to double up on the best part.
Now, I’m going to make another batch of frozen drinks while you print out this recipe. Be safe and enjoy your cooler weather.
