Pear Cranberry Crisp

I found this recipe on a cooking board last year and it instantly became one of our favorites. I don't know who posted so I'm sorry I can't credit them for this great recipe. I love this recipe because its easy to make, healthy and delicious. Its good for dessert or can be served with yogurt for breakfast. This is one of those dishes that disappears quickly at our house!

Pear Cranberry Crisp
Serves 4

3 very ripe pears, peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
1 cup whole cranberries
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp butter

Preheat over to 400. In a bowl, combine pears, cranberries, maple syrup, and lemon juice. In another bowl combine oats, brown sugar, and flour. Cut in butter until it is coarse crumbs and the dough just barely holds together. Spoon the cranberry mix into an 8x8 baking dish, and spoon the dry mix over it.

Bake until the topping is brown and crisp, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350, and bake until the fruit is bubbling, about 20-25 minutes more.
