Another recipe perfect for the fall and winter months. Fall fruits make great pies, cobblers, and crisps. This crisp recipe is a great option if you want to keep your dessert lower in fat and calories. This is a fun texture recipe. Big or small pear slices, the crumbly top, the sweet and tart of the fruit and lemon juice. You can use butter or make it vegan by using margarine if you prefer. The spices are great; cinnamon and nutmeg. The light crispy topping is light and crispy. As made, it is not too sweet.
