The Holidays are changing for my girls and I as we settle into the reality of a divorce. I don’t have my girls every holiday now and though that can sometimes make me very sad, it also gives me the motivation to make the ones I do have with them even more spectacular. So when I find a product that can help me make something wonderful and delicious for my girls, I am all over trying to make it something they will look back on and love one day! PAM Cooking Spray has always been a mainstay for my baking and cooking. Now they have improved their formula and they now leave 99% less residue and build up on baking dishes and pots and pans. So I thought I would try it on my Easy Apple and Pear Crisp Recipe and see if it helped save my brand new Le Creuset Pie Dish. 

Easy Apple and Pear Crisp Recipe  #PAMSmartTips #ad

I have made Apple and Pear Crisp for years now with my original recipe coming from Ina Garten and the Food Network. But with three kids and a full time blog to run, I needed a simpler recipe that I could throw together in a no time but still have the same awesome taste of. So I used the Apple and Cranberry recipe on the PAM website and modified it to what the kids and I like.

I made some modifications as I went too. I don’t have a food processor, nor did I want to wash one when I was done, so I mixed the ingredients in a bowl. I did not think it made much of a difference at all, to be honest. In addition, a little trick I used was to use the PAM Cooking Spray to moisten the mixture prior to pouring it in my dish and I think that made it even more moist and delicious.

When the crisp was cooked, I topped it with Vanilla Ice Cream and Candies Pomegranate and Walnuts that I found at the store to give it some extra crunch. It is delicious!!

But the best part is that a dish that usually has bits a pieces that stick to the dish, and a residue that lingers no matter how I scrub, came out to serve easily and cleaned up to like new. I really think this new formula is going to save my dishes this holiday season by not only providing great flavor, but also helping me keep my dishes like new!
