Pear Apple  Crumble #fooddonelight #healthy dessert #fruit dessert #low calorie #dessert #apple crumble

For some reason I think the apples and pears have been better this year then in other years.  They seem a little sweeter and actually ripe.  I had kind of sworn off apples and pears as they had been so disappointing in the past few years.  I am making up for it this year.  This is my second dessert with apples and pears.  As they are so good on their own, little sugar needs to be added.  So here is another dessert to make while the apples and pears are so delicious,Pear Apple Crumble.

I have been dessert crazy lately but have been trying to concentrate on fruit desserts.  They tend to be lower in calorie and I can take advantage of the lovely fruit that is in season.  I also don’t feel as guilty for eating dessert when they are primarily fruit.  This one is quick and easy.  I whipped it up while my Grandmother was here for Christmas.  She has a serious sweet tooth too.  We were all sick but I was dying for something sweet.  It takes all of 10 minutes to put together then into the oven it goes.

There is something so appealing about a crunchy topping on baked fruit.  If calories weren’t an issue, I would have a lot of crumble with a little fruit.  Let’s face it, the crumble is the best part no matter how delicious the fruit is.  I love a crunchy but slightly ooey, gooey crust, you know that part where the juice of the fruit mix with the bottom of the crumble.  OHHH!  Wish I had a spoonful right now.  Time to go raid the fridge and see what fruit I have.  I know I have all the ingredients for the crumble.  You never know when you will feel the need for a Pear Apple Crumble!
