Good Day Pear Crisp

This would be a great way to use up pears in the fall.  This is wonderful. My kids, however, did not appreciate it as much as I did.  Hopefully yours will!

  • 1/2 of a ripe Bartlett pear

  • 1 small lemon wedge

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dark brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon rolled oats

  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped walnuts or pecans

  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter

  • Pinch of cinnamon

  • 1 rounded tablespoon cottage cheese or plain whole milk yogurt, for serving

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
    2. Halve the pear half and core; cut crosswise in slices and place in a 6-ounce custard cup. Squeeze the lemon on top, add the sugar, oats, nuts, butter and then cinnamon and bake for 20 minutes, until bubbly and golden and pears are soft.
    3. Let cool for 5 minutes and add a dollop of cottage cheese or yogurt.
