A few weeks ago Joy the Baker shared these beautiful peach cobblers. She rocks when it comes to putting beautiful things on a plate. And she always has such great ideas!

Since I didn’t have peaches, and quite honestly, don’t like cooked peaches, I decided to make something different.

Baked Pears!

Henry’s had organic pears for $0.25 a pound. How could I resist? And while my kids love to eat pears fresh, it was a fun breakfast to doll them all up with a crumb top. Yum!

These are pretty simple. Nothing fancy. Turns out my kids would have preferred that I peel the pears first. I found the evidence in the bottom of the pan. They scooped up the pear and the good stuff and left the peel behind. I don’t know how they did that, actually. It was an amazing feat.

Let that be a lesson to you.

I used four pears and gave each a very generous topping of ginger-flavored crumbles. You may want to use more pears for a thinner crumble top.

What a sweet fall breakfast or dessert!

  1. This looks really good – luckily I have some pears I need to use. I might even make it tonight!

    YAY! I just looked in my pantry and saw some pears that I had bought to make pear bread but then my husband stuffed them in the back corner and, well, out of sight out of mind I guess! So they DEFINITELY need to be used today! The kids will LOVE this for dessert!

    I made this and the flour amount seems very high. It baked up really powdery. Did you mean 1/2 cup of flour?

      Hmmm…. it didn’t do that for me, though the crumb topping is generous. I know humidity levels can sometimes make a difference. We’re getting a load of pears this next week. I will test it again. I hope it wasn’t a train wreck for you.

      @Meredith, you are right! My apologies. I just made this and the flour is way too high. I’ve adjusted it. Please forgive my error.

    Jessica, I just made this again (several times now) and just wanted to say thank you for the great recipe. With the adjusted amount of flour, it is so good! My family loves it.

    • Ah, good. So glad to hear, especially after that initial typo. Thanks for your kind words!
