Apple-Pear Crisp

I hadn't baked for quite awhile and everyone at work was wondering if the stove was broken. I told them on Monday that I would bring treats on Tuesday. One co-work met me in the parking lot and saw my hands were empty and said "Hey, you said we were getting a crisp........ahhhh" as he saw he grab my pan out of the back seat. I was a little concerned because I dotted some butter up on top and it just made pools of liquid and the crisp didn't look crispy. It was finished by second break, so it must have tasted fine, or they were being polite!

Apple-Pear Crisp
4 apples, peeled and sliced
2 pears, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup flour
1/2 quick rolled oats
1/2 brown sugar
1/2 butter
cinnamon sugar

Place sliced apples and pears in an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over fruit and shake dish to cover fruit. Mix remaining ingredients until crumbly and sprinkle over fruit. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes. Really good with ice cream but I didn't have a freezer at my disposal at work, so they had to eat it plain.

Off to make dinner for Dude. He went to pick up the vehicle we got for Drama Queen to drive. She has been taking my Caddy, which I am not thrilled with, but we sold our 'teen driver' car to our best friends so she needs something until the Jeep gets fixed. Have I told you how many heart attacks I have each day when she drives? Oi vay!

People think I'm nuts, but I'm not a pear fan. However, I would totally eat that. It looks awesome! Even if it wasn't super crisp, at least the moisture was butter. ;)

I love pears and should bake with them more. My fave is with ginger. This crisp looks spectacular, lucky co workers.

Please dont have too many little heart attacks, she'll be fine, mommy:)

Color of your caddy, is it pink?
