This is a variation of the traditional Apple Crisp that I dreamed up one day when I didn't have enough apples, and there were pears in the fruit bowl, and leftover toasted walnuts from something else. We love it. Cranberries can be substituted with raisins or dried cherries. Comice pears taste best with this recipe.

Complete silence descended on the table as folks dug in to this dessert! It was so delicious for fall. I changed a couple things--added 2 extra pears, so therefore increased the rest of the ingredients (except apples) by 50%. I didn't have walnuts, so used pecans. One tip is to mix the topping ingredients in the food processor--just pulse until it looks like coarse crumbs--fast and easy.

A VERY good crisp recipe. Feel free to play around with the ingredients. I followed the suggestion of other reviewers and added 1 tsp. each of cinnamon and nutmeg. I also added orange juice and orange zest. This is one of those recipes that I don't feel you can go wrong with. Enjoy!!

Nice combination - I like the different textures of apple and pear (I used Granny Smith and D'Anjou because that's what I had). Needs some spices, though, cinnamon, nutmeg or a combination. I've tweaked this several times and my favorite included cinnamon in the topping, pecans instead of walnuts and I used fresh cranberries, not dried. I spiced & sweetened them up by simmering 1 cup cranberries in about 3/4 cup water, the honey and a cinnamon stick and a couple strips of orange peel studded with whole cloves. Stirred that mixture (removing stick, peel & cloves) in with the apples and pears.
