The whole hands-on time for this recipe was 15 minutes max. It was very simple and came out bubbling and smelling very sweet. It is just as sweet to eat but not too much, there's still a little bite to it. The oatmeal crisp topping adds a really nice crunch. So simple, quick, and seasonal!
This was really tasty and so comforting on a winter's eve. One word of caution, make sure your pears are really ripe otherwise they may not soften up and release their juices. I used Spelnda and Splenda Brown Sugar in places of the sugars and substituted applesauce for half the butter bothwith great results. Granted the crisp was a little chewier, but with a scoop of sugar-free ice cream it was just delicious!
