I don't know about your house, but at mine we are apple addicts. We have iPhones and iPods, in addition to our apple computer. If the carnivore could justify it we'd have an iPad too. Oh, and we like real apples too. Really, they can be just as addictive. This apple pear crisp is the latest recipe in my repertoire that kept us hooked for days.

To make this crisp you will need:
4 golden apples, peeled
3 ripe pears, peeled
1/2 cup of sugar
1 package of cinnamon spice instant oatmeal
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of all purpose flour
6 tblsp of butter, diced

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a deep glass baking dish. Dice the apples and pears. Toss them in the baking dish with the sugar. In a separate bowl mix together the oatmeal, brown sugar, flour, and nuts. Cover the fruit with the dry mix. Dot the dish with the diced butter. Bake uncovered for 35 minutes or until the crust browns a bit. Served a la mode with some plain vanilla ice cream while still piping hot. Yum!

Just so you know my family's apple addiction goes beyond me and the carnivore. When my mom, who also has her own litany of iProducts, stopped by the other day to see baby omnivore - even she could resist tasting this crisp. Guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...


  1. Hmmmm... I think I have everything to make this except the instant oats. I do have regular rolled oats so I could probably just add some cinnamon to that and I should be ok right?? Also, I don't have any pears so I'lll probably just use apples. Yum.
