Pear and Berry Crumble Recipe

Pear and Berry Crumble Recipe
Whenever I buy pears, it seems I end up with lots of them that are ripening too fast. This Pear and Berry Crisp is one of my favorite desserts to make before they get to soft. The sweet, soft pears are paired with your choice of berries – our favorite are blackberries and raspberries – but you can use blueberries or strawberries. They are topped with an oatmeal crisp topping full of real butter, and the result is absolutely decadent.
Make sure you keep plenty of highest quality vanilla ice cream in the freezer so that you can serve this yummy dessert at any time.

12 Servings

6 to 7 fresh pears
2 cups fresh blackberries

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
