Asian Pear Crisp

For dessert at Create a Farmer's Market Feast, we made a delicious Asian pear crisp with pears from K & J Orchards with a scoop of Almond Sorbet from Scream Sorbet. K& J sources all the citrus for Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc and French Laundry along with 58 other notable Bay Area Restaurants. Crisps and crumbles are wonderful seasonal desserts. 
Asian Pear Crisp

4-5 Asian pears, sliced in circular rounds
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2. Place pear slices in a glass baking dish
3. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, pecans, salt, cinnamon and just enough butter to add small clumps
4. Cover pear slices with mixture and bake for 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and pears are slightly bubbly. Enjoy with saffron almond sorbet from Scream Sorbet!
