Two varieties of apples go into our Apple and Pear Crisp: Granny Smith and McIntosh. We also used two semi-firm pears to get the right flavor combination. Our Apple and Pear Crisp will serve 6, and we guarantee there won't be a single bite left over. Top each bowlful with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra treat and garnish with a sprinkling of cinnamon to reinforce the cinnamon flavor in the crisp. If you have leftover apple cores, don’t throw them away. Check out our best uses for leftover apple cores. And don’t forget about the peels! We’ll also show you how to put your leftover apple peels to good use.
