Blackberry & Pear Crisp

I like trying new flavors together and for me it was blackberries and pears.  I happened to have both on hand that needed to be used and what better way than making a crisp.

Blackberry & Pear Crisp

2 pears, pared and diced

1 1/2 cups blackberries
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2  cup water
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 large egg slightly beaten
1/2 cup butter melted

Place pears and blackberries in a greased 9" square pan.  
Mix first five ingredients together and stir into peaches.  Sift remaining ingredients (not the butter) together, add the beaten egg and stir until crumbly.  Sprinkle over top of the fruit mixture.  Drizzle melted butter over topping. Bake for 1 hour at 325°.

  1. I love desserts like this, anything pie like with a big scoop of ice cream is definitely my cup of tea! Thanks for sharing MIchele :)
