Pear Crumble

Rated as 4.31 out of 5 Stars

"ORIGINALLY a pear crumble pie, I shortened this to a crumble when I often was too short of time to make a pie crust. I've also found canned pears work as well as fresh, so that makes it even easier to prepare. -Kezia Sullivan, Sackets Harbor, New York"

I used canned pears, allspice and cinnamon My whole family loved it! Wonderful recipe.

Very good! Easy, of course, and tastey and perfect for fall. I skipped the nuts, because I didn't have any and am not found of them in desserts.
