Recipe #10: Pear & Apple Crisp Recipe

Posted Aug 12 2007 12:00am

As promised, I'm finally posting some of my original recipes from the last few days of my cooking escapades
Pear & Apple Crisp

2 pears, peeled & cored
2 apples, peeled & cored
4 tbsp. cinammon powder
1/4 tsp. nutmeg powder
1/2 tsp. clove powder
1/4 tsp. allspice powder
1 c. orange juice
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. oatmeal (plain, unsalted oatmeal flakes)
lowfat/light non-dairy whipped topping

Instructions: Core & peel apples & pears & slice into wedge.

There are two ways to make this dish; you can either make it in a pan or in a glass dish.

If you make it in a pan, you need to add all of the ingredients (except the whipped topping of course) to the pan. Reduce the liquid in the pan by about half, & stir until the sugars caramelize. This makes a really sweet treat with a compote-like consistency. I like to serve small portions in little glass custard dishes with a dollop of light non-dairy whipped topping on top.

If you prefer, you can also cook the ingredients in a glass dish. Pour all of the ingredients into the glass dish (except the whipping topping) & bake on 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10-15 minutes or until crisp. Watch to make sure the apples & pears don't burn on the bottom. Serve with a dollop of light non-dairy whipped topping & enjoy!

Alternate preparation ideas: You can mix some OJ with the oatmeal & form a "piecrust" on the bottom of the pan, instead of mixing the oatmeal in with the other ingredients.
