I wanted to create a small dessert to use up some pears that I have on hand. It turned out my pears were so large that I only could use one in my one quart casserole.
1 large pear, peeled, cored, and diced
1 tsp lemon juice
3 tbsp brown sugar firmly packed
4 tbsp rolled oats
3 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 dash ginger
1 dash nutmeg
2 tbsp butter, softened
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 dash cinnamon
Grease a 1 quart casserole. Peel, slice and dice one large pear or 2 medium into the casserole. Mix lemon juice into pears. In a small bowl, combine 3 tbsp brown sugar, oats, flour, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and ginger and nutmeg. Stir into pears.
Mix together butter, 2 tbsp brown sugar and the dash of cinnamon. Dot top of pear mixture in casserole.
Bake for 30 minutes at 325°F
