Cranberry-Pear Crumble

Cranberries play very nicely with sweet pears and a crunchy topping in this aromatic dessert. Make it perfect by adding a scoop of cinnamon ice cream to each serving.
  • 3 cups cranberries
  • 2 large unpeeled pears -- cored and sliced
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 c. flour -- divided
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 3/4 c. oatmeal
  • 3/4 c. chopped nuts

In lightly greased shallow baking dish, mix the cranberries, sliced pears, sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of the flour; set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix the remaining flour with the brown sugar. Cut in the butter until coarse crumbs form. Stir in the oatmeal and nuts. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the fruit mixture.

Bake the crumble at 375-F degrees for 40 minutes. Let it stand for 10 minutes before serving.
