Ingredients
  • 4 to 5 ripe Bartlett or Anjou pears
  • 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
  • Pinch nutmeg and salt
  • 1/2 cup or 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • Heavy whipping cream or ice cream, for serving
Directions
  • 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.
