At Nest To Keep dot com, she is hosting a Fall cooking fest! There are already some great recipes I want to try!
My kids have had no school this week due to the wind storm. So they have spent a lot of time outside riding bikes, chalk coloring and building a fort out of bark (that will be another post). They also have enjoyed picking pears off our tree...at first I was not sure but they are VERY delicious and ripe!
So with so many pears and everyone home...a warm "pear" crisp is what this family needs! It turned out wonderful...so good in fact, that I was going to take a picture of it after it was cooked but it was ALL gone! You could use this recipe with any type of fruit...apples would be great. It is so sweet and the topping is thick and yummy!
