Pear and Cranberry Crisp

The beginnings of Pear and Cranberry Crisp

It's snowing here today which makes it a perfect day for hibernating.. AND.. for turning on the oven to bake something fragrant and yummy like this Pear and Cranberry Crisp. It's guaranteed to gather the troops from all corners of the house and put a smile on any face.

You need your basic apple crisp kind of recipe, but then replace the apples with not-too-ripe pears and add some fresh or frozen cranberries (I used fresh).

There are a couple of yummy varieties of the recipe over at Epicurious. One includes walnuts, one is without; one is served with vanilla ice cream, the other with cinnamon ice cream.

A tip about the cinnamon ice cream -- I just take a few scoops of vanilla ice cream, sprinkle it with cinnamon, and then mix it together. You can serve it softer or put it back in the freezer till hard again. 


Here's wishing you a peaceful Sunday!
