Ingredients

6 cups Anjou or Bartlett pears, cored and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices (about 3 pounds)

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces

1/3 cup regular oats

1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 375°.



Combine pears and lemon juice in a 2-quart baking dish; toss gently to coat. Combine granulated sugar, cornstarch, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; stir with a whisk. Add cornstarch mixture to pear mixture; toss well to coat.



Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar, and salt in a food processor; pulse 2 times or until combined. Add chilled butter; pulse 6 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add oats and walnuts; pulse 2 times. Sprinkle flour mixture evenly over pear mixture.



Bake at 375° for 40 minutes or until pears are tender and topping is golden brown. Cool 20 minutes on a wire rack; serve warm or at room temperature.
