Pears and apples are good anytime of year, but during the holidays a bit of spice flavors them like no other season. Baking these fall-harvest fruits makes for some of the best breakfast and desserts year round. There is something so familiar about these spices during the holiday season. It ignites the kitchen's aroma and brings a bit of heart and hearth into the home.
I found these handmade gingham aprons made for adults and children. The green apron is lively and as green as a Bartlett. Alongside some retro 1970's napkins, pears were the inspiration for something easy yet tasty.
I've been introduced to cast iron skillets over the last year. I cannot believe it took me this long to discover them, but after the first use I love cooking with cast irons. I decided to try my first baking spree with a cast iron by making a pear crisp. I used the sugar and spice combination that I used in my Gluten Free & Vegan Cardamom-Spiced Pear Crostata recipe.
Simple and easy, I hope you enjoy a crisp baked in a different way!
