Creating the Flavorful Pear Base:

  1. Prepare your baking pan by lightly greasing it. This will ensure that your Pear and Golden Raisin Crisp doesn’t stick to the pan, allowing for easy serving. Set the pan aside, ready to welcome the aromatic ingredients.
  2. In a bowl, combine the chopped pears, golden raisins, ground cinnamon, ground cardamom, grated nutmeg, crystallized ginger, and brown sugar. As you mix these ingredients, envision the creation of a flavorful fruit base that will soon become the heart of your dessert.


Crafting the Irresistible Topping:

  1. In another bowl, create the topping by blending rolled oats, all-purpose flour, softened butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. These ingredients will come together to form a crumbly and inviting topping that adds a delightful contrast to the tender pear base.
  2. Stir in the well-beaten eggs, ensuring that the topping mixture is smooth and uniform. This addition not only binds the topping but also adds an element of richness to your dessert.


Baking to Golden Perfection:

  1. Set your air fryer to the “Air Fry” function and adjust the temperature to 360 degrees F. Initiate the baking process by pressing the “Start” key, signaling the air fryer to work its magic.
  2. Carefully arrange the pear and golden raisin mixture in the baking pan, ensuring an even distribution of flavors. As you do so, imagine the warmth and comfort that this dessert will bring to those who indulge in it.
  3. Gently drop tablespoons of the topping mixture onto the pear layer. This act is the final touch that transforms your creation into a crisp that’s both visually appealing and irresistible in taste.
  4. With the pan on the air fryer tray, allow your Pear and Golden Raisin Crisp to bake for approximately 12 minutes. As it bakes, the air fryer will infuse your kitchen with enticing aromas, promising a dessert that’s worth the wait.


Savoring the Delight:

  1. Once your crisp is baked to golden perfection, remove it from the air fryer and allow it to cool to room temperature. Alternatively, you can chill it for a refreshing twist. Either way, this dessert is ready to be savored.
