It’s that time of year when fresh fruits and vegetables are readily available, which includes deliciously sweet pears. These tasty morsels are fabulous in many different desserts, but you just can’t beat this recipe for Old-Fashioned Pear Brown Betty!

First, I need to let you know that this recipe is extremely versatile. Therefore, if you do not have pears readily available, feel free to use other fruits.

As when making Mini Cast Iron Skillet Rustic Fruit Pies, feel free to use blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, plums, peaches, rhubarb, or apples in place of pears.

Before you begin creating this tasty dessert, you’ll need a mixing bowl, a sauce pan, and an 8-inch baking pan.

Your home will be filled with the most fabulous aroma as Old-Fashioned Pear Brown Betty bakes in the oven. Yes, I promise!

Notice the many flecks of cinnamon in the picture? Cinnamon spice really can be detected in every single bite!

Top off Old-Fashioned Pear Brown Betty with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or freshly whipped cream.
