Pear Crisp With Lemon Sauce
2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel, divided
5 cups sliced peeled ripe pears (about 2 pounds)
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamon
3 tablespoons cold butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water
1 egg yolk, beaten
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons flour, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of lemon peel. Add pears; gently toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Combine the oats, brown sugar, cardamon and remaining flour and lemon peel; mix well. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in almonds. Sprinkle over pears. Bake at 375 F. for 35-40 minutes or until pears are tender and topping is golden brown.
For lemon sauce, combine sugar and corn starch in a saucepan. Gradually stir in water until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolk; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat. Cook and stir 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat; stir in butter, lemon juice and peel. Serve with warm pear crisp. Yield: 9 servings.
