Individual Pear Crisp In a Jar

This recipe for Individual Pear Crisp in a Jar is a variation on my Easy Apple Crisp recipe. I love to use mason jars in food preparation and presentation, so it was just a matter of time until I decided to bake dessert in a jar, and making a Pear Crisp seemed like a good choice.

This recipe could be prepared with any type of fruit that bakes well–blueberries, apples, pears, peaches, nectarines, rhubarb, or plums. It could also be prepared with a combination of fruits, but I chose to make the crisps in a jar with only one type of fruit, pears.

The first step is to cut the pears into small chunks then arrange them in five or six half pint capacity mason jars that have been greased, on the inside, with butter. How many jars you need will depend upon the size of the pears. You want to fill the jars about three-fourths of the way full of pears.

Once the jars are filled with pears, all of the other ingredients should be combined to create the crumble that goes on top. The crumble (or crisp) is then divided evenly among all of the jars.
