Pear Cashew Crisp
It was a fantastic Pear year! I created this recipe about 1 month ago and in so doing I discovered more flavor combinations that I love - Pears and lime......................& cashews and cardamom..................YUMMY!
A few more of my Pear Recipes & info on Cardamom (click on each title to view the entire post):
French Pear Pie
Cinnamon Spiced Home Canned Pears
Cardamom the Forgotten Spice
4 cups pears (washed, peeled, cored & sliced)
2 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats (I used Old Fashioned Rolled Oats but quick will work also)
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped cashews
Prepare the pears as listed above & pour the lime juice on top - set aside until later. Melt the butter. In a separate bowl combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, cardamon & oats - stir until just mixed. Now add the melted butter & vanilla into the dry mixture and stir just until combined. Finally, stir in the chopped cashews. Spray/butter a square Pyrex dish and spread the pears (that you set aside from before) evenly across the bottom of the dish. Spread the buttery oat mixture on top of the pears & bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until desired texture & golden color is achieved.
Remove from the oven & allow to cool. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, ice cream or just eat plain & ENJOY!!

This looks amazing and even though I am not a pear person, maybe I could sub apples or peaches? I'm going to have to pin this one...might make a great treat for Thanksgiving this year in addition to the pumpkin pie.

Heheheheh, I just had my dear husband bring me home some pears from the store! We have apple and black walnut trees in our yard, as well as some elderberry and blackberry bushes, but no pear trees as of yet. (I've got plans, though.)
