Apple-Pear Crisp (in Mason Jars!)

Don't you just love cute little desserts? I sure do! There's just something that makes dessert more fun when it's cute.

We had a bunch of pears that really needed to be used up, so I decided to make pear-apple crisp. You don't really see plain pear crisp that much - mainly apple. I used some apples because I didn't have quite enough pears, but if you are a huge pear fan, feel free to substitute pears for the apples - I'm sure it would be just as delicious!

Serves 6

For the filling:
  • 4 large pears
  • 2 apples (Gala works well)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
For the topping:
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 6 Tbsp. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Wash, peel and dice pears and apples. Place in a large bowl and add sugar, salt and cornstarch, mixing until fruit is coated. Divide fruit evenly among mason jars.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, sugars, cinnamon and nuts. Drizzle melted butter over top gradually, mixing to combine.

Divide topping among mason jars; you may have a bit extra...snack time! Just kidding...sorta...

Bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes.

Let jars cool about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
