Maple Orange Pecan Pear Crisp

Nor A.M


This is an easy recipe. I love pears. This is a clean tasting dessert. It has just enough sweetness. It has half the carbs of a typical fruit crisp. This is my version of a Pear crisp. It has maple syrup, pecans and cinnamon. it is not overly sweet like some fruit crisps. It is absolutely delicious. Enjoy!
