Easy Pear Crisp

by GettingFreedom on October 30, 2012

I often forget just how much my family loves pears.  Every year I wish I would purchase more than I did the year before, it just never seems to be enough!

This year was definitely no exception!  I purchased 20 pounds from Azure Standard with the intent of canning some pear butter.  Thankfully I was able to make a few batches of Almond Pear Scones and some Easy Pear Crisp for a potluck.  I finally recreated the Easy Pear Crisp recipe tonight so I could snap photos and record the real measurements. :)

Note to self::  Next year purchase at least 60 pounds of pears!
