Pat's notes for this recipe:
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!

Personalize This


Heat oven to 350^. Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Press and roll cookie dough evenly in pan (I use my rolling pin in the pan to make it even- it is just the right size). Then even out edges with fingertips.
Pear Mixture:
In a large bowl, toss together all pear ingredients until all the pieces of pear are coated. Spread over the crust.
In a large bowl ,beat cream cheese and sugar on medium until smooth. Add eggs, flour and cream; beat until combined. Spread over pear mixture; sprinkle with the topping. Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and pears are tender Cool on wire rack. Drizzle with lemon glaze ,if desired.
In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients and cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over top. Bake as above.
Lemon Glaze:
1/2 cup. powdered sugar
Lemon juice
Combine powdered sugar and enough lemon juice to make a drizzle and serve over Pear Crisp.
