Butternut-Pear Crisp

My neighbor gave me a basket full of pears the other day and they are beautiful, plus I have several butternut squash from the garden, it sounds like a great combination to me! I got busy and made a delicious crisp that has all the seasons and flavors of fresh fruit from a grandma's kitchen. This is a very easy crisp to put together and I love the butternut squash and pear combination!
