Apple or Pear Crisp

Most of us have a dish that says “home”. In my family, apple pie or apple crisp would definitely fall into that classification. I can’t think of many family gatherings where my mom didn’t make one of those, especially the apple crisp.

This version is “healthified” a bit, but doesn’t taste that way. This dish works very well with apples or pears, depending on your flavor preference. It’s the perfect fall treat.

Enjoy!

Apple or Pear Crisp (Serves 6-8)

2. Place fruit in a shallow 2 quart (or larger) baking dish.

3. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Add melted butter, mixing until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit.

4. Bake for 30-60 minutes, until fruit is tender.

Recipe Notes: I would highly recommend slicing your apples thinner than the fruit pictured above. I just used the general apple slicer, but that wasn’t thin enough to cook very quickly.
