Blueberry and Pear Crisp

After 15 years, my pear tree
 finally gave me some fruit.
I don't know why it took so long. 
They usually bear fruit the 2nd. year.
My sister Annie, threatened to cut it
down, if it didn't produce fruit,  this yr.
I think the tree understood the threat. 

Flemish Beauty Pears,
a Belgium pear, suitable for my colder region.
 juicy, crunchy, delicious fruit.

I tried this fruit dessert, 
 with a oatmeal topping,  and
 everyone loved it.
Very fast and easy to do.


4 pears
2 cups wild blueberries
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp lemon juice

I peeled the pears and cut them up in large chunks.

2 cups blueberries.
I used frozen wild blueberries.

Preheat over to 350deg. F.

In a large bowl, mix together the pears,
the wild blueberries, 1/4 cup sugar,
 1 tbsp cornstarch and 2 tsp lemon juice.

Place in a square pan

For the topping

( I use Ricardo's recipe for the topping.)

1 1/4 cups Quick Oats
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter softened.

In a bowl, mix together the oats,
 flour and brown sugar.
Add the butter and mix until all moistened.

Place in the pan on top of the fruit mixture.

(Optional... sprinkle with cinnamon and almonds.)

Bake 350deg. F. for 45 minutes.

Delicious served with whipped-cream
 or ice-cream.
