Recently my mom, sister, dad and Grandma Dot came to visit.

My sister brought a BUNCH of apples from her apple trees and I already had a BUNCH of pears from my Father in Law’s pear tree.

So – of course – it was time to make a crisp.

We gals just threw some things together and we all LOVED it. So my mom asked me to write it down.

When I do that, I always write it down here.

Here it is Mom: 

The Apple Mix: 

6-7 Apples and Pears (any mix)

3/4 c Sugar

1 T flour

1 tsp cinnamon 


The “Crisp” Mix: 

1 c Instant Oats

1 c Brown Sugar

1 c Flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 Stick Butter – melted



Preheat oven to 350

Peel, core and cube your fruit.


Mix in the other ‘Apple mix’ ingredients and place in greased 8×8 baking pan.

In a separate bowl, mix the ‘Crisp mix’. Stir until the mix is crumbly.


Then place on top of Apple/Pear mix.


Bake for 35 minutes or until the sides are bubbling.


Enjoy!! (Maybe with a little ice cream??)
