This easy Pear Bourbon Skillet Crisp is bubbling with sweet fruity goodness and topped off with a buttery crumbly topping!
Preheat an oven to 375F. Butter a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with 1/2 tablespoon of butter.
In a large bowl, combine pears and bourbon. Allow them to sit for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, mix together the crumb topping. First, cut 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter into small cubes and set aside. Then in a mixing bowl add, flour, oats, sugar, sliced almonds, cinnamon, and salt. Add the cubed butter to the mixture and work together with your hands until crumbles have formed.
Add maple syrup, lemon juice, flour, and cinnamon to the bourbon-soaked pears and fold together. Pour into the buttered 10-inch skillet.
Bake for 30 minutes. Allow it to cool slightly and then serve with some vanilla ice cream if desired.
