Celebrate the pear during the fall and holidays with this easy-to-make crumble/crisp like dessert.
Ever wonder why the pear seems to take a back seat to holiday dishes?
Let’s face it – if you’re talking fruit desserts from fall through the holidays, it’s pretty much pumpkin, apple or cranberry 24/7. But I say, don’t wait until January to embrace the pear!
According to USA Pears, most varieties of pears are in season starting in August or September – some are only around until early winter though a few are available through the start of summer.
This easy to make “grumble” comes by way of my co-blogger, Serena who created a recipe inspired by a children’s book.
Now, over the years, I’ve dabbled in fruit buckles, cobblers, slumps, crumbles and crisps but never heard of a grumble. The thick batter is very fruit heavy and the top layer is a mixture of brown sugar, butter and hot water.Make a new fruit dessert tonight! Caramel Pear Grumble recipe via @tspbasil Click To Tweet
