Asian pears are crisp and perfectly juicy when eaten raw. They cook up nicely, too, as in this Asian pear crisp. Any pear will work in this recipe—Anjou pears and Bosc pears are particularly good for baking. A bit of garam masala and warm cardamom gives this crisp a little spicy kick, but feel free to leave it out and use cinnamon in their place if you (or your spice rack) is so inclined. Similarly, the whole wheat pastry flour adds a hearty, nutty note, but an equal amount of all-purpose flour or rolled oats work just as well.
Like all fruit crisps, this one is delicious with ice cream or whipped cream on top or alongside.

Look no further for a dessert that is delicious and satisfying AND fairly healthy. Fruit Crisps are my new favorite sweet to bake and serve warm with a side of ice cream or low-fat frozen yogurt.
Fresh fruit is the star of the show in a crisp. And when topped with a mixture that is mainly whole oats you are adding to the health power of this sweet concoction.

Gr8 Baking Tip:
Each fruit, depending on its firmness and sugar content, will need a little different cooking time. Asian pears are very firm and will probably take the full 45 minutes.
Gr8 Do-Ahead Tip:
This can be prepared early in the day up through Step 9, covered, and refrigerated. Before baking be sure to bring the dish to room temperature. If the dish is cold when put in the oven, the baking time will increase.
