Why I Love This Recipe

Found this recipe last year when I purchased the Cooking Light magazine. Was looking for something different for a Thanksgiving pie and this was it. This was such a hit on Thanksgiving that I made it again for Christmas last year. And of course this is back on the menu for this year.

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
