A rustic Pear Walnut Crisp made in a cast-iron skillet is quite the show stopper. Serve this easy pear crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and prepare to be amazed at the delightful taste.
We can get pears pretty much any time of year, but there is something so comforting about indulging in a warm apple crisp or pear crisp during the colder months. This recipe is so easy and it's the perfect way to spend a chilly evening.
This sweet and crunchy dessert is super easy to whip up. It requires just a handful of simple ingredients and a whole lot of pears.
The cast-iron skillet makes the edges and topping extra crunchy. You know how I feel about that!
Top the crisp with vanilla ice cream and sit next to the fireplace. It's the perfect way to treat yourself after a long week!
Pears are best during the fall season
I'm a total fool for fruity desserts. They are my absolute favorite. While summer fruits are some of the best, I do get a little googly-eyed at over apples and pears. I mean, just imagine a warm comforting dessert with pears, nuts, cinnamon, and a crunchy topping. Doesn't that sound good?
This dessert is the perfect way to cure that craving I just gave you. This pear walnut crisp has so much flavor and texture. I could barely get it photographed without stealing samples. I was seriously eating it right out of the pan. Who needs a bowl anyways?
This crisp, like all other crisps, is the easiest thing to make. I think the most tedious thing about it is peeling and chopping the pears. But really, this a great dessert for the less experienced cook. You can even get your little helpers to assist you in mixing the topping and sprinkling it over the fruit. You can't mess this up.
