Baked Pears with Oatmeal-Raisin Crumble

This dessert is quick, easy, healthy, and delicious. Enjoy!
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, not packed
  • 1 tablespoon green pumpkin seeds/pepitas
  • 1 tablespoon golden raisins or other, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • pinch salt
  • 4 large firm-ripe Anjou or Barlett pears, unpeeled, halved, cored
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Baking sheet
  • Foil or parchment paper
  • Fork
  • Small bowl
  • Paring knife
1.  Preheat oven to 375°F.  Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
2.  In a small bowl use a fork to cut butter into flour until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal; sir in the oats, sugar, pumpkin seeds, raisins, cinnamon, zest, and salt until well-combined.
3.  Cut a thin slice off the rounded side of each pear half so that pears will sit flat; place pear halves on prepared baking sheet.  Sprinkle   1-1/2 tablespoon crumble topping over each pear half; bake until crumble is golden and pears are tender, about 25-30 minutes.  Serve the pears hot or warm.
Serves 4.
