Happy Tuesday, friends! Today I’m sharing one of my go-to dessert (breakfast/lunch/dinner, haha) recipes, and a bit about my new favorite coffee source! This apple pear crisp is super simple and satisfying. Crisps are relatively foul-proof but so incredibly rewarding. Chop up some seasonal fruit, add a mixture of oats, nuts, butter or oil, sweetener, and throw it in the oven. 50-60 minutes later, you have a dessert fit for a king, IMHO. It’s not labor intensive, so this mama of 2 loves it. And it’s not too glamorous or showy, so clearly I must make it a lot. When you pair it with the perfect cup of coffee, you’re set for dessert.
I wanted to share a bit about my new favorite coffee company, too! Cordial Coffee Co. opened up a few months ago in Berryville, VA (about 20 minutes from me). They have the sweetest shop, and roast some of the best beans I’ve ever had. Brandon & Kaitlyn generously partnered with me at An Intentional Autumn by providing coffee for all our students and for serving throughout the weekend. If you’re local, you should take a trip out there. It’s worth it, and I hear they have the tastiest waffles (served with Trickling Springs ice cream). Their current seasonal waffle batter is gingerbread. YUM.
What I love MOST about Cordial Coffee Co. is their coffee subscription! I recently signed up and just received my first bag of freshly roasted beans in the mail. I always forget to buy coffee and don’t realize I’m out until I put the kettle on and go to grind my beans. And I don’t typically buy my beans in the grocery store, so coffee isn’t on my radar when I’m there… I signed up for the subscription, and now coffee will be delivered to my doorstep each month. Magic. I go through just about 1 lb. every month (Joe doesn’t drink coffee…yet), so the 1 lb. plan is perfect for me (they also do 2 lb bags)! This would make such a perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life!
Now, on to the recipe for the apple pear crisp, which pairs wonderfully with Cordial’s mild Peruvian La Flor del Zapote.
Apple Pear Crisp
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup coconut oil, melted
4 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 – 1 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel, remove any spots, and slice apples and pears. Place in bottom of 10″ casserole dish or deep dish pie plate and sprinkle with 1 tsp cinnamon and lemon juice. Toss to thoroughly coat.
In a small saucepan on a low-medium heat, melt the coconut oil, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together oats, syrup, 1/2 tsp salt and remaining 1 tsp cinnamon. Stir to compltely mix these ingredients, then add coconut oil, mixing while adding.
Taste, and adjust salt/syrup ratio according to your own preference. I prefer a slightly salty mix. Carefully place oats mixture on top of fruit, gently pressing the oats into the apples and pears. I usually have a little extra of the oat mixture, which I snack on, or if I’m feeling generous, I’ll share with Joe and the kids. Bake for about 50-60 minutes until oats are browned and crispy, and fruits is just tender. ENJOY with a piping hot cup of Cordial Coffee. Let me know if you visit them (and how delicious their waffles are)!
