Cranberry-Pear Crisp

The holidays may be over, but the cold weather rages on. Fight the cold air with a toasty dessert crisp that will warm you from the inside out. Cranberries and pears mingle with a cinnamon-spiced crumble topping—a perfect start to the new year.

Serves 6

What You Need:

For the filling:
4 cups sliced pears
1-1/2 cups cranberries
2 tablespoons oat flour
1/3 cup Sucanat
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the crisp topping:
3/4 cup rolled oats
1⁄3 cup oat flour or barley flour
1/4 cup Sucanat
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup vegan margarine

What You Do:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all filling ingredients and set aside.

2. In a small bowl, place all dry ingredients for topping and stir to combine. Using your fingers, work margarine into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

3. Add fruit filling to an 8-inch baking pan or shallow casserole dish. Sprinkle crisp topping evenly over filling. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool before serving.
