Caramel Pear Pie with Crumb Topping

Caramel Pear Pie with Crumb Topping

Caramel Pear Pie with Crumb Topping a delicious dessert with fall pears, caramel, and a crunchy crumb topping.  A delicious dessert for your holiday meals and special occasions.

Thanksgiving is upon us and I wanted to squeeze in one more holiday dessert idea for you.  Really this pie is so good that it would be perfect anytime.

Our new place has pear trees and I found myself with an abundance of fabulous pears.  I was quite happy to put together a pie using fruit from our tree.  I added a crunchy topping made from oats and corn flakes and then a drizzle of caramel seemed to be the right way to finish it off.  Of course a dab of whipped cream would also be wonderful.
