Pear-Cranberry Pie with Oatmeal Streusel
- Cooking Time: 60 mins
- Servings: 12 servings
- ¾ cup regular oats
- ½ cup packed light brown sugar
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- dash of salt
- 2 tbs chilled butter, cut into small pieces
- 3 cups (1/2) inch cubed peeled Anjou pear (2 large)
- 2 cups fresh cranberries
- 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 ½ tbs cornstarch
- 1 unbaked 9-inch deep pastry shell
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare streusel by combining first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles a coarse meal.
Prepare filling by combining pear, cranberries, 2/3 cup brown sugar, and
cornstarch in a large bowl; toss well to combine.
Spoon pear mixture into pastry shell; sprinkle streusel over pear mixture. Bake for 1 hr or until bubbly and streusel is browned.
Cool at least 1 hr on a wire rack.
One can substitue apples for pears if wanted. Also, you can use pears, apples, and cranberries...this is what I did for Christmas.
All I can say is yummy.
