Liz’s Kitchen: Dutch Oven Pear Crisp Recipe


It’s that time of year! The Pear tree I have in my back yard is ready to be harvested! Over the weekend we picked the pears and were excited to try a new recipe I found in a Dutch Oven cookbook I picked up!


It was a fairly easy and quick recipe but I’ll tell you right now I left cardamom out of my recipe because that spice is expensive and never used in my kitchen! I looked it up and it said a substitute is a mixture of cinnamon and nutmeg, which are both in the recipe, so we’re good!


Pear Crisp In The Dutch Oven

6 tablespoons unsalted bitter, at room temperature, plus extra for greasing
8 pears, peeled and diced into 1-inch cubes
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Pinch salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease dutch oven with butter and peel and chop you pears.


In a medium bowl, combine the pears, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom.


In a separate bowl combine the brown sugar, oats, walnuts, flour, 6 tablespoons butter and salt. Stir with a fork until medium-size crumbs begin to form.


Place the pears in the bottom of the Dutch oven an put the mixture on top.


Cover and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pears are tender and the crust is golden.


So tasty and so easy! If you don’t have a Dutch Oven, no worries try this recipe!
