Autumn pears

Autumn pears
Many of you know there is a former church at the end of our driveway. There is a glorious pear tree right at the front door. For years, the owner of the building was not in residence so I would pop over there and take a few pears to make a crisp with of an October morning.

I always called it 'The Fruit of the Forbidden Tree Crisp'. Well, forbidden no longer! The owner is back in residence and she kindly allowed that I could stop by and take a few pears whenever they ripened.

It remains to be seen if the crisp will taste as good now that it is no longer 'forbidden'! Ah, don't we always want what we're not allowed to have!

Here's the recipe for the crisp. (And it is a crisp, not a cobbler.) You can make it with any kind of non-tropical fruit you like- berries, apples, pears, plums, peaches, etc.
