Pear Crisps


Did you watch Sweets Made Simple? The couple behind the fabulous sweetie shop Hope and Greenwood had a whole series dedicated to making sweets, perfect TV. I loved watching it and the recipes seemed quite achievable, with the only extra gadget you’ll really need is a sugar thermometer. 

These pear crisps were the easiest of the lot and after being given a huge bag of pears from a colleague I decided to make them.

It’s as easy as slicing the pears, keeping the skin on, into thin coins and dusting them with cinnamon sugar. 3 hours in a very low oven, and you have yourself pear crisps!

We’ve been snacking on them with a cuppa, and also having them with pear compote (made with the rest of the pears!) and yogurt for breakfast. A great healthy snack (you could even get away with leaving out the sugar) and they make you feel very autumnal.
