Salted Caramel Pear Crisp


We haven't quite figured out the heat in our new house and I seem to be cold ALL of the time. There is a lot more tile in this house compared to our house in Austin so maybe that's why... I don't know, but I do know that I where slippers all day that I am home because my feet are so cold! Ha! I'm such a wimp though. ;)

Anyway, enough about my cold feet! :) So, the other night when I was cold I wanted a warm dessert. I decided to make this delicious pear crisp and it hit the spot. Notice the picture though, I did have to add me some vanilla ice cream. It's the perfect combination. My taste buds over ruled my cold feet on this one!

Salted Caramel Pear Crisp

  • 6 cups sliced pears {10-11 pears}
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice {juice of 3 lemons}
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place sliced pears in a greased 13×9 baking dish. Pour lemon juice over pears and toss gently.
Mix sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Cut in cold butter until crumbly. Add nuts and combine. Sprinkle crumb topping over pears.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until browned.

Salted Caramel Glaze:
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons white or raw sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar, sifted
Heat butter, sugars, salt, vanilla and milk over medium heat, stirring constantly. When mixture reaches a boil, boil for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and continue stirring. Add one tablespoon confectioner’s sugar to thicken.
Drizzle salted caramel over warm pear crisp.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

I hope you love it!
