Cranberry Pear Crumble Recipe by SkinnyTaste Author Gina Homolka

FALL 2014 UPDATE: We’re excited to announce that we are now partnering with Gina Homolka of Skinnytaste to give away copies of her new cookbook, The Skinnytaste Cookbook: Light on Calories, Big on Flavor. She has also graciously shared a few of her other pear recipes with us, and we’re delighted to share them with you. Visit the Skinnytaste – Harry & David partnership page today. In December 2013, we sent Gina a box of our famous Royal Riviera® PearsShe quickly came up with a decadent way to use our pears for a fantastic holiday dessert. Try Gina’s Cranberry Pear Crumble recipe this season and find out why our pears are the best around.  Royal Riviera® Pears are so sweet and juicy, you won’t have to add too much sugar or honey to sweeten up this warm, delicious fruit crumble. Paired with seasonal tart cranberries and finished with an oat-nut topping, this crumble is the perfect excuse to turn on your oven on a cold winter night, whether you’re having guests over or just need an excuse to make something sweet. If you’re like me and love the combination of warm desserts with cold toppings—a dab of fat-free frozen yogurt on top will totally hit the spot!

    Loved this crumble although I changed a couple of things. Had no lovely pears on hand and the weather was too frightful for traipsing out, so apples were chopped up instead. I also added a bit of natural coconut in the topping with walnuts instead of pecans. The orange zest was absolutely super. Just a wonderful winter variation from my usual crumble – thank you!
