Pear Oatmeal Crisp paired with Non-Fat Vanilla Yogurt

Judy prepared a dessert the other evening, which followed our Crab and Corn Bisque and Roasted Chicken with Pepper and Onions. It was so good I couldn’t put off writing about it any longer.

Pear Oatmeal Crisp with Vanilla Yogurt
Judy had found a recipe for a Plum Oatmeal Crisp that she had wanted to try, but since it’s November and the plums are long gone, she figured that a nice Autumn fruit, the Pear, would be a good substitute.  Was she ever right!!  I can only imagine what this dessert would have tasted like with plums. Using Pears instead was brilliant.

We paired the dessert with a dollop of Non-Fat Frozen Yogurt. Delicious!

We proudly offer our first post for a dessert recipe.  From our kitchen to yours.

Pear Oatmeal Crisp   


2 pounds pears (any type), fresh, sliced

Non-stick cooking spray
½ cup Oatmeal, old fashioned
2 Tbsp All purpose Flour

2 cups Non-Fat Vanilla Frozen Yogurt


Preheat oven to 350. Combine Pears, Lemon juice, Sugar, and half the Cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.  Mix thoroughly. 

Transfer to an 8 inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Set aside.
Combine Oats, remaining Cinnamon, Flour and Sugar in another bowl. Mix thoroughly in bowl or food processor.
