Pear Martini Crisp

A luscious dessert with pears, vodka, and a perfect crisp.


  • 2 ½ cups fresh Pears peeled, cored, and sliced (about 4-5 large pears)

  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup Butter
  • 2/3 cup Flour
  • 2/3 cup chopped Walnuts

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray an 8-inch round cake pan or 9-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together vodka, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Add pears and toss until fruit is completely glazed. Pour mixture into prepared pan; set aside.
  • Topping:
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Stir in flour, walnuts and sugar until well combined and crumbly. Sprinkle mixture evenly over pears.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and bubbly. Remove from oven and let cool.
