Spiced Pear Crisp Delight

Embrace the Pleasures of Pear Crisp

When it comes to desserts, the more variety, the merrier! Crisps are not only effortless to prepare but also perfect for sharing. This delightful recipe begins with ripe pears generously coated with a blend of cinnamon and ginger, ensuring a burst of flavor in every mouthful. Topping it off is a streusel featuring oats, adding both substance and texture to this divine dessert.

Spiced Pear Crisp Delight


  • Pears: Opt for firm yet ripe pears, sliced to a thickness of 1/4 inch (0.6 centimeters) for ideal texture and flavor.
  • Spices: Cinnamon and ginger play starring roles in this fall-inspired dessert, infusing each bite with their warm and aromatic essence.
  • Oats: Quick oats are used in the streusel topping to provide a delightful crunch. Alternatively, old-fashioned or rolled oats can be used for a slightly different texture.

Enhance with Nuts

For an extra layer of richness and texture, consider adding your favorite unsalted nuts, such as walnuts or pecans, to the streusel topping.

Serving Suggestions

Spiced Pear Crisp Delight is best enjoyed warm, though it retains its deliciousness even at room temperature. While this dessert is delightful on its own, it reaches new heights of indulgence when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, accentuating its warm and comforting flavors.

Storage Tips

Once cooled to room temperature, cover any leftover crisp with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate for up to 5 days. For optimal crispiness when reheating, place individual portions in the air fryer or oven for approximately 10 minutes.

Spiced Pear Crisp Delight



  • 4 firm ripe pears, peeled and sliced to ¼-inch thickness (about 0.6 centimeters)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (30 milliliters)
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract (7.5 milliliters)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (16 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (1.25 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger (1.25 grams)

Streusel Topping

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour (65 grams)
  • ½ cup quick oats (45 grams)
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed (100 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (2.5 grams)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt (1.5 grams)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted cold butter, diced (85 grams)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch (23-centimeter) baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the pear slices with lemon juice.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, cinnamon, and ginger. Sprinkle over the pears and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Transfer the pear filling to the prepared baking dish.
  5. Streusel Topping: In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add the cubed butter and use your hands or a fork to incorporate it into the flour mixture until pea-sized crumbs form. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the pear mixture.
  6. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until the pears are tender and the topping is golden brown. Serve warm and enjoy the comforting flavors of Spiced Pear Crisp Delight!
