Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Dessert
Serves: 4
  • 4 ripe Bartlett pears, peeled, cored, chopped
  • 1 Tb. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tb. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ c. golden raisins
  • ½ c. all-purpose flour
  • 1. c. old-fashioned oats
  • ⅛ c. brown sugar
  • ⅛ c. white sugar
  • ¼ c. walnuts, roughly chopped
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 Tb. unsalted butter, cold & cut into small pieces
  • 3 Tb. olive oil (not extra-virgin)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine pears, lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins.
  3. Place pear mixture into an 8X8 baking dish OR 4 8-oz ramekins. (Note: if using ramekins, place them on a small cookie sheet to avoid spillovers).
  4. For the Topping, place dry ingredients in a stand up mixer (or in a bowl to use a hand-held mixer). Add butter pieces and mix on low until large-size balls start to form. When very crumbly, add olive oil and continue to mixing on low another minute until fully combined.
  5. Spread the Topping over the fruit. I like a lot of topping, so pile it high on the fruit!
  6. Bake 30-35 minutes until bubbly and crunchy.
