Pear Walnut Crisp
Baked crisps are amazing and I have made many different types of fruit crisps. This pear walnut crisp has a buttery crunch with the sweet taste of pears in every bite! I am so getting into the fall season! Seriously, it’s my favorite time of year for baking and you will love this pear walnut crisp! What a great dessert to kick off your holiday baking!
This delicious dessert is loaded with pears, walnuts and a crunchy topping that you will fall in love with! There’s nothing like a hot, right out of the oven, pear walnut crisp topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping! Oh my, so yummy!
I also made a pear pecan cobbler, along with this pear walnut crisp, last weekend that I will be posting soon. You can never have too much goodness when it comes to seasonal fruit desserts! I needed to use up my pears and what better way than a quick and easy pear walnut crisp and a pear pecan cobbler, which will be on the blog soon.
This pear walnut crisp is definitely sweet and so tasty. If you love apples, my apple pear walnut crisp is to die for as well!
How often do you have fruit that doesn’t get eaten? Fruit in general seems to go bad at our house but when added to a baked crisp like this, that ripe fruit makes such an awesome tasting dessert! This pear walnut crisp is just such an example of a great way to use up fruit before it gets tossed, especially if you buy lots of fruit like we do.
