Crisps are baked desserts of fruit topped with a sweetened crunchy pastry-like mixture. Called crumbles in England, crisps possess a warm, comforting appeal that spans the oceans.
Fresh cranberries can be frozen for up to one year.
Walnuts, pecans or almonds work equally well in this crisp.
For best results, use firm, ripe pears with a pleasant aroma.
