Ready for some more fall recipes? I have a yummy one for you today. I’m sharing an Asian Pear Marple Crisp. It’s a delicious casserole dessert made with Asian pears and covered with maple oat crisp.
I love casserole type recipes because they are very easy to make and require very little dish washing. Casserole desserts are even better. You can spend a little more time on the main course and throw the desert together then in the oven while having dinner.
Crisps and cobblers rock as easy casserole desserts. I like to get creative with crisps and cobblers, to mix it up a little.
They might be a little expensive, but I absolutely love Asian Pears. They are so light, crisp and taste like a hybrid between a juicy pear and golden delicious apple. Using Asian pears in a crisp created a perfect balance between the light and airy fruit and crunchy, heavier crisp.
Since the Asian pear is sweeter than a traditional apple, I used much less sugar. It helped keep this dessert perfectly sweetened but not overly sweet. I also used pure maple syrup in the oat crisp to add extra flavor. Boy, that turned out good!!
I also like to use Country Crock in my casseroles instead of butter. The fact that it has 0g trans fat per serving, it contains no partially hydrogenated oils and that it has no cholesterol, is very appealing to me. My favorite part is that it’s 70% less fat than butter per serving and has 30% fewer calories than butter per serving.
- 3 large Asian pears
- 2 tbs brown sugar
- 2 tbs finely chopped pecans
- 2 tbs flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbs water
- 1 1/2 cup of oats
- 2/3 cup flour
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup of melted Country Crock
- 2 tbs pure maple syrup
- 2 tbs finely chopped pecans
- Preheat the oven to 350.
- Core and chop the Asian pears. Combine the chopped Asian pears, sugar, flour, cinnamon and pecans in a bowl and mix until everything is evenly distributed. Transfer the pears into a greased 9-inch round or an 8x8 casserole dish. Pour the water over the pears, that will keep more moisture in the dish.
- In the bowl, combine the ingredients for the crisp and mix very well, until all incorporated. Spread the crisp over the pears, evenly.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes.
