Serves 10-12 | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 cup flour
3/4 cup quick oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ripe California Bartlett pears, peeled, cored and sliced
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, stir to combine flour, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir in butter with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of a greased 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 15 minutes. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar, egg and vanilla; spread over baked crust. Top with pear slices, remaining oat mixture and nuts. Return to oven and bake an additional 30 minutes. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting.
