My grandmother would add a tablespoon or so of bourbon to her pear crisp filling. She called the addition “a little flavoring.”

A lovely autumn recipe.
We have two large pear trees and I'm always looking for pear recipes.This is a relatively simple and delicious recipe. I say relatively because preparing the fresh pears is what takes the time.The only change I made was I didn't use a food processor for the topping, but I merely stirred it and "sprinkled" (thick sprinkles) over the top.This recipe is quite a bit like apple crisp with a different twist.I'll make it again. It was a big hit with the family.Thanks Frank!
