    desserts | Choose your favorite baking apples and pears for this delicious dessert. Add a 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg and a 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger for a more robust spice flavor.

    List of Ingredients

    1 sprays cooking spray
    1 pound apple(s), Granny Smith, cored, cut into 1-inch-thick slices
    1 pound pear(s), Bosc and/or Bartlett, cored, cut into 1-inch-thick slices
    2 tsp fresh lemon juice
    10 Tbsp dark brown sugar, unpacked, divided
    1 large egg(s)
    1/4 tsp table salt
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 cup rolled oats
    6 Tbsp light butter, melted


    Peeling the fruit is optional.

    The longer the crisp is cooled, the more the fruit juices will be absorbed. If the crisp is cut after two hours, the fruit will be a compote-consistency. If the crisp is chilled overnight, it will be much more firm. Either way, it’s very tasty!

    Try this recipe with other types of fruit: three pounds of pitted, quartered Italian plums make a lovely crisp.
