During the fall months, I like to make different crisp recipes. Usually, I make our favorite Apple Crisp. But, my son’s therapist blessed us with some fresh pears a couple of weeks ago. I knew they would make a perfect fall Pear Crisp.

Ingredients to make Easy Pear Crisp.

How to Make Pear Crisp

First, you will need to preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Then, heavily grease a baking dish with shortening or butter. I like to use Crisco. I typically use an 8×10 sized baking pan.

After peeling and slicing the fresh pears, add them to the prepared dish. Next, sprinkle cinnamon on the sliced pears.

    1. Hi, Fiza you could but may want to cut back a bit of the cooking time. I hope that helps as I have not used canned pears with this specific recipe before. Be sure to let us know how it works out for you.

    Easy and by far the best way to enhance pears. We are making it again today but with strawberries and blueberries. This recipe is a keeper.
