Cranberry-Pear Crisp

  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
  • 1 none (12-ounce) package fresh cranberries
  • 6 none pears, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange rind
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked regular oats
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine


Combine first 7 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until cranberries pop and mixture thickens. Spoon evenly into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Combine oats, flour, and brown sugar in a small bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit mixture.

Bake at 375° for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
