1 large or 2 small pears
1 and 1/2 tablespoons apple jelly
20g rolled oats
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 tablespoon liquid honey (I used wildflower)
pinch of salt
1/2 to 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts (optional)
you'll also need:
an oven-proof onion soup bowl (or other individual sized cooking container)
baking sheet lined with foil (optional, for easy cleanup)
small bowl for mixing topping
1. preheat the oven to 350 F and spray your baking dish with cooking spray. With a sharp knife, peel and slice the pears, placing them into the dish (and making sure there's no core in there). Add the apple jelly and stir to coat the pears. Try and arrange them evenly. [note: I used apple jelly because the one we have has sort of a honey-like flavor and texture. You could use any jam or jelly you think would go well.]
2. in a small bowl, combine the oats with the cinnamon and salt. Stir to mix. Add the honey and melted butter, mixing until everything is coated and glossy-looking. Spoon the topping onto the pears, trying to make it evenly distributed.
3. sprinkle the chopped walnuts on top of the oat mixture. Place the baking dish on the baking sheet and put them in the oven. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the filling is bubbling and the topping is browned. Once it's done, give your crisp a few minutes to rest so it doesn't burn you, then enjoy!
I made this recipe up on the basis of the one I did before.
