Individual Pear and Apple Crisps

4.8 from 5 reviews

These make a wonderful, quick and pretty darn healthy dessert. They’re also delicious for breakfast with a big dollop of vanilla Greek yogurt. You could also top them with vanilla bean ice cream or maple-sweetened whipped cream. Feel free to gussy them up with a sprinkle of lemon zest. No matter how you eat them, you’re going to love them!



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a large baking pan (a 13×9 inch pan would work well).
  2. Cut the pears and/or apples in half and use a paring knife to carefully cut out the cores. Discard the cores.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Use a big spoon to mix it well.
  4. Scoop about two tablespoons of dough onto each pear/apple half and use your hands to smush it into a mound.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is golden.


Recipe adapted from 101 Cookbooks’ plum and peach crisp recipe and inspired by Joy the Baker’s peach cobbler for one.
