Pear Cranberry Crumble

Just in time for the holidays! This warm baked fruit dessert is made with Royal Riviera pears and seasonal tart cranberries, then topping with a oat-nut crumble topping – delish!

Harry and David sent me a box of their finest pears to develop a recipe for their blog Field Notes. Royal Riviera pears grown in Southern Oregon are so sweet, juicy and tender, you can literally eat them with a spoon. Since these pears are so special, I wanted to create a dessert that would do them justice and since fruit crumbles are one of my favorite desserts, I knew exactly what I was going to make.

This recipe will serve 6 to 8 people depending on their appetites. If it's a special occasion and I want to splurge, I'll serve it warms with my favorite fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt from Stonyfield's and serve it a la mode.

  1. I love a fruit crumble, and this one is so Christmassy! Pear and cranberry are a perfect combo, and I bet this would be a hit at any holiday table.

  2. I love Harry & David pears. They're the best!

    This recipe looks like it did the pears justice ;)

  3. Love pear crumble, any time of year! Yummy recipe, Gina.

  4. My husband received a box of Harry and David pears as a work gift. My youngest daughter and I made this yesterday--so easy and tasted incredible! Thank you for yet another amazing recipe. Merry Christmas!!

  5. Love your website!! A side note here: I still use these boxes to protect and store my fragile smaller ornaments. The compartments are perfect. I have used the boxes for years...long before they started selling the plastic ornament storage containers. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season! :)
