Blueberry-Pear Crisp (serves 2)

Sorry this picture looks this way but when this cooked it bubbled up and when it started to cool it settled.  It's really good though, so look past the ramekin.  The other day while grocery shopping they had fresh blueberries on sale for a $1.00 a container, so of course had to get some.  I wasn't sure what I was going to make.  I was in the shower and got thinking about baking and thought to myself, wonder if blueberries and pears go together.  I've had urges for pears lately.  They really are a great fruit and so tasty and sweet when they are ripe.  I thought about making some sort of tart, but to be honest I was feeling very lazy that day.  We had just had a good bit of snow and I made my comfort food of Chicken and Dumplings, so I wanted something easy.  And boy this is easy. Takes just 10 minutes to prepare and cooks in 30 minutes and is just to die for when done.  Could be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream I bet, I'm not a fan of vanilla ice cream but those of you who are should try it with it.  This could also be doubled or tripled to make for 4-6 or even more, just use individual small ramekins.  I found this recipe here.

Pre heat oven to 375, and butter the ramekins.  Put berries and pears in the bottom of two 6 oz ramekins.  Mix sugar, flour, oats, and spice together.  Add the Crisco and use a pastry cutter to blend and make crumbly.  Sprinkle on top of berries, top with walnuts and bake for 30 minutes until top is nice and brown.  serves 2

I would have never thought of combining pears with blueberries, but it sounds like they would really compliment each other! Yummy!
