Pear and Candied Pineapple Crisp

I stumbled across candied pineapple the other day, and have been yearning to put it in some kind of recipe ever since. I wish I could say I made the candied pineapple - but that would be a lie. It's fall, and I love fall more than anything - I love the flavors and colors and the weather. Anyway, it's the best time for things like cider and crisps.

Pear and Candied Pineapple Crisp


1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup oats
1/2 cup almond flour (or almonds ground in food processor)
1/4 cup candied pineapple

1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 pears, cut into cubes

Cut the pears, mix with sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt. mix around with finger tips. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and layer the filling on the bottom of a baking dish.

Mix the flour, light brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt, oats, and almond flour with butter in a bowl. Add candied pineapple. Using your fingers, really mush it together - take care not to mush the pineapple, just the rest of the filling.

Bake 50 minutes. Yum!
