I find this recipe to be a perfect Yom Tov recipe, as most of the preparation can be done way in advance, yet they will still be perfectly fresh.

INGREDIENTS

Yields approximately 20 pear halves


Ingredients 
  • 2 Gala apples, diced
  • 1 8-oz (500 g) frozen cranberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 10 ripe Bartlett pears (should be yellow in color)

  • CRUMB TOPPING 
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 6 Tbsp (3/4 stick) margarine, or a ⅓ cup oil
 


PREPARATION

Place the diced apples, cranberries, and sugar into a medium-sized pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer until the liquid congeals. Remove from heat.

 Combine ingredients for crumb topping in a small bowl. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Cut pears in half and scoop out the pits plus some extra flesh. Fill the cavities with fruit mixture and sprinkle generously with crumbs.

 Arrange in a pan and bake for 30 minutes or until a fork goes in easily.

TIP The apple-cranberry mixture can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Store crumbs in the freezer.
