Recipe Tips
  • Food Facts
    The best varieties of pears for baking are Anjou or Bosc.
  • Note
    If crumb topping starts to overbrown, cover the dessert loosely with foil for the last few minutes of the baking time.
  • Note
    Don't worry if your pears are a bit on the firm side, since they will soften nicely when baked.
