  • Prep Time:


Cups of Fruits & Vegetables per Serving:
Think Variety; Think Color: Red, Green


1 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 tsp. salt
8 Tbs. (1 stick) butter or margarine, chilled and cut into pieces
3 1/2 lbs (7 large) pears, slightly under ripe, peeled, cored, and each cut length-wise into eight slices
1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbs. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ground
1/4 tsp. ginger, ground
vanilla ice cream (optional)


1. Place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square baking dish with 2-inch sides.

2. To make the topping:
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, oats, and salt. With a pastry blender or two knives used scissor-fashion, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

3. To make the filling:
Toss together the pears and next 5 ingredients until well mixed and spoon into the prepared dish. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the filling. Set the dish on a baking sheet to catch any drips.

4. Bake for about 1 hour, or until the topping is golden and the filling thickens and bubbles. Cool at least 20 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
