Last year I started making these individual pear crisps; my parents have a pear tree in their front yard, and every year they give us several bags of pears. This year we shared a few with our neighbor and kept a few to eat and also made these tasty treats. You’ll find a printable recipe below, for your convenience.

The first step is to mix up the crumb topping. The topping I use is inspired by the apple pie recipe I use from my Taste of Home cookbook, only I added in some brown sugar for even more flavor. Let the butter soften, and then mix all the ingredients together with a pastry blender. Cut pears in half, and scoop center of each pear out, including all seeds. Fill in each center with crumb topping. Then sprinkle on top, covering each pear. Now they’re ready for the oven.

Bake at 375 degrees for around 45 minutes or until crumbled topping is golden. Top with whipped topping, if desired, and serve while warm. Enjoy!

  1. Yum! I make pear crisp and just posted a recipe recently, but I adore the idea of baking them in their own skins. This is such a beautiful serving idea, too. I’m definitely making this :)
