In keeping with my current running theme of “quick and easy”, I wanted to share this delicious dessert with you.
I always love to whip up something new with ordinary ingredients already found in your cupboards or pantry. This Pear Crumble delivers that sweet crunchy taste right along with the fast and easy preparation!
The other night I was making a really nice dinner, and I wanted to make it just a little more special. Sometimes a nice dessert finishes off your meal in a way nothing else can. So after inspecting my pantry items, I decided to make a crumble. Now typically most people would have almost all the ingredients for a crumble on hand, which I did. For the fruit, I settled on a can of pear halves in low sugar sauce. Now, I’m not even a fan of pears, but this dessert was scrumptious! Think of a crumble, crisp, or cobbler as the procrastinators pie. Same type of feel, with far less work. It’s perfect served warm with a scoop of ice cream!
- 3 medium pears, peeled and sliced, or one can of pear halves drained
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons old fashioned oats
- 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
- a dash of ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon cold butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
|Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut pears in large chunks, place in bottom of a greased baking dish and sprinkle with lemon juice.
|In a bowl, combine the sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg.
Whisk all the dry ingredients together until well blended. Add butter or margarine and cut into it with the mixture until the mixture is clumpy. Add nuts.
|Sprinkle mixture evenly over pears in baking dish.
Place in preheated oven and bake for about 25 minutes, or until bubbly.
|Let cool for a few minutes. Serve warm with ice cream. Enjoy!|
