Pear Walnut Crisp
This rustic Pear Walnut Crisp made in a cast-iron skillet is quite the show stopper. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and prepare to be amazed at the delightful taste.
This Walnut Pear Crisp is a twist on your traditional pear crisp. The addition of walnuts makes it extra crunchy and flavorful, while still being super easy to whip up.
Choose ripe but firm pears. You don't want them to be too soft or they will disintegrate during cooking.
Make the filling
Toss pears with walnuts, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
Add to pan
Generously butter a cast iron skillet and add the filling.
Make the topping
Whisk together the flour, brown sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter until it's broken into small pieces.
Add the topping
Sprinkle the topping evenly over the filling. Bake until topping is golden brown and the juices are thick and bubbly.
Serve the crisp warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
