  • oven (adjusted to the center rack position)
  • 11x7 baking dish
  • 2 large mixing bowls
  • Vegetable peeler
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • cutting board and knife


Fruit Filling

  • 5-6 large pears peeled, cored, and sliced to ¼" thick
  • cups cranberries
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Crisp Topping

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ cup butter unsalted, cubed


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray an 11x7 inch baking dish with nonstick spray or run it with a tablespoon of melted butter on a clean paper towel; set aside.
  • Peel your pears with a vegetable peeler and cut the pears into 1/4 inch thick slices excluding the core.
    5-6 large pears
  • Add peeled pear slices, cranberries, lemon juice, ⅓ cup sugar, and cornstarch to a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until all evenly coated.
    1½ cups cranberries, ⅓ cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • Evenly spread fruit into the bottom of the greased baking dish.
  • In a separate bowl, add the oats, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cubed butter.
    1 cup old-fashioned oats, ½ cup all-purpose flour, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ cup granulated sugar, ¼ cup light brown sugar, ½ cup butter, pinch of salt
  • Mix well with clean, gloved hands until the mixture is no longer powdery and can be formed. Sprinkle crumble over the top of the fruit.
  • Place the dish in the oven and bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes.
  • The topping will feel firm and be a deep golden brown once done. The fruit will be tender, juicy, and bubbly underneath.
  • Serve warm with a spoon and add a dollop of vanilla ice cream over each serving. Enjoy right away!
