Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

4 ripe Bartlett or Anjou pears (4 to 5)
1/4 cup cranberries, fresh or dried
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup rolled oats, uncooked
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Pinch nutmeg and salt
1/2 cup or 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
Heavy whipping cream or ice cream, for serving


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel, core, and thickly slice the pears.

Toss them with the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cranberries and turn them into a deep, buttered 2-quart baking dish.

The fruit should be at least 2 1/2-inches deep in the pan; add more fruit, if necessary.

For the topping, in a bowl, stir together the flour, oats, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

Drizzle in the melted butter tossing the ingredients with a fork to blend.

Be careful not to over mix because you want a loose crumbly mixture, not a bound-together ball of topping.

Sprinkle the topping over the pears.

Bake for 30 minutes, until pears are tender and topping is browned. Serve warm with heavy cream or ice cream.
