Apple Pear Crisp

This year, for Christmas, I got, not one, but two apple peeler/corers. I don't mind peeling my ingredients by hand, but this is quite the invention. It peels, cores, and spiral slices anything you stick in it with just a few turns of a crank.

So I decided to finally try it out and make a apple pear crisp. It came out delicious and took half the time that it normally would have.

  • 3 Bosch Pears peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 3 Granny Smith Apples peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsps all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsps lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsps and 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup quick cooking oats
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a medium size bowl, toss apples with sugar, flour, cinnamon, lemon juice, and water.
  3. Spread evenly into a 8x8 inch pan.
  4. In another bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, oats, and butter.
  5. Spoon mixture evenly over apples.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes.
  7. Let cool for 20 minutes and serve.


  1. The crispy crispies on the edge pieces are particularly delicious.

  2. sounds delicious! and i AM a fan of crisps (vs. crumbles or strudels)
