Recipe of the day…..Pear and Apple Crisp

Here’s the recipe for today.  I’m going to be baking this on Tuesday for an event that I’m going to be “catering” for.   Our church is hosting Matthew West and Josh Wilson in concert on Tuesday, and our two youth pastors asked me if I’d do that cooking for the band/crew for the day.   After checking the contractual menu needs for the day I agreed to do it!   I am actually REALLY SUPER excited about it, and will share with you all some of the recipes that I’ll be making that day.   One of the dessert’s that I’m going to make for dinner for that day is an apple/pear crisp.   I will be using fresh local and organic fruit for this dessert.   Here’s what I’m going to be doing… this recipe is a LITTLE on the different side, but I LOVE to do my crisps this way!

Apple Pear Crisp

Original recipe from Lori4squaremom (

4-5 medium apples (I prefer a mixture with at least 1/2 being granny smith, but the other half of the apples can be any variety), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
2-3 pears, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
2 Tbsp. organic brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs or nilla wafer crumbs, very finely ground
3/4 cup brown sugar (softened)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup melted butter (1 1/2 sticks)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl toss first 4 ingredients together then spread fruit mixture into lightly greased (I spray mine with PAM) 9 x 13 inch pan.   In same large bowl mix together cookie crumbs, brown sugar, cinnamon and oatmeal until it is all well combined.   Cut in butter until the mixture resembles a coarse crumb mixture.    Sprinkle generously over fruit.

Bake in 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until fruit is soft and cooked through and crumb crust is brown and crispy.
