A family favorite dessert that's tried and true! The crispy topping is buttery and sweet and the pears and apples are a perfect combo! Apple and Pear Crisp Recipe from Hot Eats and Cool Reads


I've officially made and started a New Year's resolution for the first time in my life!

2017 is the year for me to finally lose some weight and we just got a family membership at the local YMCA. I'm holding myself accountable with the help of my boyfriend to make it to the Y at least 12 times a month so we can get our health insurance discount.

I know, posting a dessert and talking about losing weight?!? Haha, it's all about moderation!

I actually made this dessert a couple months ago, and now am finally getting around to posting it. Sweets aren't typically my thing, and that's why you see more savory recipes posted here.

It's portion control for me and it's going to be a major life change.

My siblings and I grew up with my mom making this dessert every fall with just apples. We had a huge apple tree that produced hundred of apples every fall and what better to make than this apple crisp.

My most favorite memory was sneaking some of the crisp from the bowl before it was sprinkled over top of the apples.

The butter and sugar combo was delicious and we always had to stop ourselves from grabbing seconds so there was enough for the entire top of the pan.

What is in Apple and Pear Crisp?

  • Butter: A dairy product consisting of approximately 80% butterfat and made from the fat and protein components of milk or cream. Most commonly made from cow's milk, but can also be made from sheep, goat, yak, or buffalo milk.
  • Cinnamon: Loaded with antioxidants and also has anti inflammatory properties it has been used medicinally around the world for thousands of years. Cinnamon is a spice from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. You can use it in sweet and savory cooking and baking.
  • All purpose flour: It's a combination of hard and soft wheats. Bleached flour provides a softer texture. It's versatile and you can bake most anything with it!
  • Apples: An apple is an edible fruit produced by an apple tree. Apples are low in sodium, fat, and cholesterol and are a good source of vitamin C and fiber. Apple trees are cultivated worldwide and the tree originated in Central Asia, where its wild ancestor, Malus sieversii, is still found today.

You can use just apples for this recipe, but the pears are a wonderful addition and plus they go perfectly with the apples.
