I LOVE that my son loves to eat fruits and vegetables, and consider myself lucky because he is really willing to try anything at least once these days. Great right? But let me tell you what happens when well-meaning grandparents hear “my grandson likes pears” and bring them faster than you can eat them? I knew the situation was bad, but actually counted this morning as I was putting away groceries and realised that we had 15 pears in the fridge! I knew the easiest fix was to make some sort of pear dessert, and made what turned out to be the most perfect pear crisp recipe for dessert for Friday night dinner!
I grew up with apple crumble as a regular in our home, but am not sure that we ever had pear crisp, so I looked online for some recipe inspiration. As far as reviews go this recipe by Ina Garten had the best reviews by far so I decide to use it as my starting point….
