Cream Cheese Pear Crisp

By Pat Duran kitchenchatter

This is a new twist on an apple crisp-
You will love the crust on this Pear Dessert, which is also good for breakfast too!
Gala or Golden delicious apple are a good subsitute for this dessert too, although I have used Granny Smith's because I like tart!
Works great with peach or plum too!
