Apple and Pear Crumble
A great dessert that nobody can resist! Tastes great with vanilla ice cream.

I made this as directed and has too much sugar. I think I would cut the sugar mixed with the apples down to less than half and add some lemon juice to balance the flavor (depending on the tartness of the apples) . I would also add some salt to the topping to balance out the sweet there.Read More
Just made this and loved it! The only thing I did differently was omit the brown sugar in the apple pear mixture. I thought that the 3//4 of a up of brown sugar in the topping mixture was plenty. It was.
I made this for dinner tonight, but since I am trying to lose some weight, I cut down on the brown sugar. Having scaled the recipe to four servings, I used 1/4 c. in both the crumble and 1/4 c. in the fruit. It was perfect! My husband deemed it amazing, and I wish I could have had a full size portion! Thanks for a keeper, Mel.
Thanks for sharing a great recipe. Simple to make and my entire family loved it served with vanilla ice cream. I made exactly as written and would not change a single thing.
I really liked this recipe and decided to change it up a bit just to see what I could do since the basic recipe was so good! Mostly, like a couple of other posters mentioned I cut down on the sugar on the actual fruit some. But that would be to personal taste. But what I also did was try different fruit! I think this would work great for just about any seasonal fruit you could think of! My current fave is nectarines. I just cut them up like apples and then tossed them in a small amount of the brown sugar and put the cinnamon in the topping instead of on the actual fruit. Everyone that has tried it has said it was wonderful! :D

Made this last night & my teenage son ate half the pan after his soccer game! We loved it with ALL the sugar plus chopped pecans on top for extra crunch. Served it hot with vanilla ice cream & it was AMAZING! Tasted like apple pie ala mode but better! Thank you for an awesome recipe!
Just made this. It was very good, but very sweet! Next time I will definatly cut down the sugar.
I will definitely make it again. I used quick oats instead only because that is what I had on hand.
I didn't add nuts but I did add Heath Bar Tidbits to the apple pear mixture. The recipe was easy to put together and delicious. The Heath Tidbits added extra flavor and crunch.
I wish I would’ve read the comments before I made it. Too sweet but delicious. I will make it again with half the brown sugar.
I make this several times every year to use up the apples and pears that grow in our backyard! Love it’s simplicity and lack of crust. The only change I make is to cut the brown sugar down to a half cup in both parts.??
Quite delicious, although it's so very sweet. Definitely would use less brown sugar next time. Thank you!
Loved it along with family. not only as a dessert but for breakfast also
Even my 19 year old who complains liked it!
I used large flake oatmeal and halved the sugar as other reviews suggested...omG, good thing I made a double batch! Will be making this again. It was unanimous hit.
I think it should've cooked a bit longer or hotter. I think the apple mix was missing a splash of lemon juice and some cornstarch. The juices were watery and didn't stick to the apples. And the topping was not good at all. The oats didn't get moist enough and it ended up dry.
buenísima! super crujiente!
Just made this yummy easy dish, too sweet for our family, will def make again with half the sugar
The best! Easy to make! Taste so good!
It was good and easy, but I found the fruit filling a bit dry. Maybe it was the apples I used? I believe they were gala. I think it would have been better if the fruit was more moist/gooey...
Made as directed minus almonds. It was really good with fruit fresh from the tree but next time I'll add a little salt.
Made this substantially as written in order to give a fair review of the original recipe. I did cut back brown sugar to 1/2 cup tossed with fruit because the fruit was very sweet on its own (and because of other reviews). I had an abundance of pears that needed to be used so they didn't spoil so my fruit mix was 2/3 pears and 1/3 apples; didn't use any nuts because of a "nut hater" in the family. Mmmm ... Good stuff!
I took the advice of others, omitting the sugar from the fruit mixture and adding a bit of salt to the crumble. It doesn't taste bad, but there is too much crumble and it is a bit dry. I think that decreasing the oats and flour by a bit, and increasing the fruit (using a bigger pan), would address that.
I made this exactly as written except added a very few dried cranberries to the topping. Should have added them to the fruit mix as it was very wet. Otherwise quite good except as others noted, the amount of brown sugar made it sickly sweet. Will reduce the sugar by half next time and add a bit of corn starch and lemon to the fruit mix. I must add though, my husband loved it just as is! Thanks.
I made it last night and it was far too sweet. Next time I will use more fruit and no brown sugar with the fruit.
I adjusted the recipe and made it in an cast iron skillet, I've received nothing but rave reviews. With the combination of the Apple's and Pears it's a perfect match. Thanks go out to allrecipes.
Went with 1/2 cup sugar in top and 1/2 cup in fruits... Perfection... Well complemented by the vanilla ice cream. Hubby loooves it and so do I. Thank you...
Reduced the sugar to 1/2c in topping, none in fruit, and it came out perfect.
I made half a recipe, using 1 Asian pear and 1 apple and walnuts instead of almonds as those were the ingredients on hand. Cut sugar to 1/4 cup in both the filling and topping, baked in 4 ramekins. Got rave reviews served to a friend. Looking forward to the leftovers for breakfast!
For what it's worth, I didn't bother peeling the fruit. It didn't make it any less delicious (and increased the fiber content!) I did take the suggestions of reducing the sugar to about 3/4 cup total, 1/2 cup in topping and 1/4 cup in fruit. I also doubled the cinnamon!
this recipe is so much easier than others I have tried: chop the fruit (my pears ended up being bad, so i used frozen blueberries), thow in the pan, mix the dry ingredients and put on top! easy peasy! and delicious!
Simple to make and very tasty and wonderful feel good dessert.
A nice addition to our Thanksgiving dinner! The only change I made was to cut back on the amount of brown sugar that was to be added to the fruit mixture as the pears and apples I chose were both very sweet varieties.
Yes it was delicious, will definitely make again
Loved this! I used only pears since we have a pear tree and had an abundance of pears this year, and it turned out wonderful!
The only thing I changed was to reduce the brown sugar added to the fruit to 1/2 cup.
I cut up more apples and pears and increased the the quantity of crumb topping
I added some dried cranberries in with the apples and pears, but otherwise followed as written. Mixed reviews from the family. I personally didn't like the "crisp" part at all. Heated and served with ice cream and it was a little better. Will not make again.
I’m making this right now. Let you all know
I used gluten free baking flour, a 1/4 c brown sugar in the crumble and 1/4 cup brown sugar in the fruit and it turned out great!!! And totally gluten free!
This was way too sweet for me and had too much crumble. The crumble portion could have been halved.
Love it! Used Bosc pears, one honey crisp and one royal gala apple, and added a dash of ground clove and nutmeg.
I made a larger batch and added cinnamon in the topping and the fruit. This was really good but I wished I added another fruit like blackberries or maybe craisins. I will have to try it next time.
I made this with only apples, and it turned out great! So delicious, even without ice cream. I love the crumble top!
Delicious! We omitted the almonds, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. We will definitely be making this again!
very good! I will make again next time I would lessen the sugar it was too sweet for our family. Still, it was devoured!
I made this with several changes others used. I used only apples and cut the brown sugar with the fruit and in the crumble in 1/2. Used 1/4 cup but might cut it down further. I also omitted the nuts but will try them the next time I make it. The only problem I had was there was liquid in the bottom of dish. Not sure why. Next time I will add a thickening agent. My husband said it was good but a tad sweet. Will make again. Is a very easy and simple recipe. Thanks for sharing..
Good flavor. Would use less of the crumble part next time and bake longer.
My husband doesn't like oatmeal, otherwise I would give it 5 stars.
Nom! Salted caramel ice cream
A fabulous dessert! I've used fresh blueberries and reduce the brown sugar a bit in both the blueberries and the oat flour mixture because of health issues. It has become a favorite with my family.
