ORIGINALLY a pear crumble pie, I shortened this to a crumble when I often was too short of time to make a pie crust. I've also found canned pears work as well as fresh, so that makes it even easier to prepare. -Kezia Sullivan, Sackets Harbor, New York


  • 3 medium pears, peeled and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Dash ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped nuts


  1. Place pear slices in a greased 1-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
  2. Cut in butter until crumbly; add nuts. Sprinkle over pears. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
