Ingredients
  • 1 pound cranberries (thawed if frozen)
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 firm pears (such as Bosc), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground allspice
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Combine the fresh and dried cranberries in a large bowl. Add 1 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons water and the vanilla and toss to coat. Lightly smash with a potato masher or fork to burst some of the cranberries. Add the pears, cinnamon, allspice and 2 tablespoons flour and toss to coat. Transfer to a 3-quart baking dish.

  • Make the topping: Mix the remaining 1 cup flour, the pecans, oats, the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and the salt in a medium bowl, then stir in the melted butter. Use your fingers to pinch the topping into small clumps and sprinkle it over the fruit.

  • Bake until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden brown, about 40 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
