I made this recipe a while ago, but while digging through my photos, I realized that I hadn’t yet shared it with you!
Cranberries and pears are a great combination for a fall/winter dessert. The longer pears ripen, the sweeter they become, so they play nicely with the tangy cranberries. And using cranberries makes the whole dish turn pink, which of course I love.
I used a bag of cranberries and 4 pears for this crisp. I made it the same way I made my other crisps, but since I had so much fruit, I doubled the topping. Despite the fact that the pears were quite sweet, I knew that the cranberries would be a bit too tart without adding a bit of sugar, so I tossed the fruit in 1/2 c. brown sugar before sprinkling the topping over it.
