Fruit Crisp


  • Filling 4 pears (Bosc), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 6 ounce bag Welch's Cranberries & Spiced Apples
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Topping 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into small cubes, chilled
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Butter an 8-by-8 baking dish and set aside. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add chopped pears. Saute pears stirring frequently until slightly softened, three to five minutes.
  3. Pour pears into a medium bowl and toss with remaining six filling ingredients. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Prepare topping and sprinkle over fruit filling. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is browned. Remove and cool slightly before serving.
  4. Topping: Stir together all ingredients except butter in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with two knives or a pastry blender until combined and the mixture resembles small pebbles. Serves six to eight.
