Apple-Pear Crisp

Have you ever checked out the reduced produce section of your local grocery store?? It’s amazing what fruit and veggies you’ll find! Produce in great condition and for super cheap, you can’t go wrong! Especially if you’re planning on baking or cooking with fruits and veggies, why would you spend more money for something without a little bruise, or less ripe..? They’re getting chopped up, pureed, sauteed, steamed anyway! I was at Longos and saw these beautiful pears calling my name, 6 of them for $1.00! As the weather is starting to get chilly, I thought a pear crisp was sounding pretty delicious. Check out my simple recipe 🙂
