  5. Mix flour, oats, sugar, and butter until crumbly.

  7. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown.

 

The result is a warm, sweet, and crunchy dessert. The pears become tender, while the topping adds a satisfying crunch.

Tips and Tricks for Perfect Pear Desserts

 

  • Choosing the Right Pears: Use ripe but firm pears. Overripe pears can become mushy.
  • Balancing Flavors: Adjust the sugar based on the sweetness of the pears.
  • Texture Matters: For crisps, ensure the topping is crumbly. For cobblers, the batter should be thick but spreadable.
  • Experiment with Spices: Cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg complement pears well.
  • Serving Suggestions: Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
