cardamom pear crisp {in jars}

When choosing the dessert for my last workshop, I knew it would include pears. After all, I had been craving them all month!  I thought about turning the Gingerbread Pear Galette into a dessert-in-jar creation but decided it would be much better try something new.

Cardamom adds the perfect amount of warmth to this winter treat.  Topped with homemade whipped cream (or served warm with a scoop of ice cream), this dessert is sure to please.

Theoretically, this recipe could even be reduced to create one perfect dessert-in-jar treat (or two, just in case you need a back-up).  I even stumbled across some delicious variations HERE and HERE.  The printable recipe is below.

Cardamom Pear Crisp {in jars}

Yield: 6-8 oz. jars

Ingredients

  • Filling:
  • 8 medium pears
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel pears and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Put into a large bowl and toss with lemon juice to prevent browning.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Pour over sliced pears and mix well.
  4. Fill jars with pear mixture. (Pack them in to about a quarter inch from the top of the jar as they will cook down during baking.)
  5. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, oats, brown sugar, cardamom, ginger, and salt; mix well.
  6. Add softened butter, blending well with a fork.
  7. Distribute the topping evenly over each jar, packing down tightly.
  8. Place the jars about 2-inches apart on a cookie sheet and back for 25-30 minutes (or until top is golden brown).
  9. Serve warm or allow to cool down to room temperature before putting lids on.
