  • 4 firm ripe pears, peeled and sliced to ¼-inch thickness
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

Streusel Topping

  • ½ cup (62.5 g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (45 g) quick oats
  • ½ cup (100 g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted cold butter, diced


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside. (This recipe would also work in an 8x8-inch baking dish.)
  • In a large bowl, toss pear slices with lemon juice.
  • In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch, cinnamon, and ginger. Sprinkle over pears and toss to coat well.
  • Scoop the pear filling into the prepared baking dish.

Streusel Topping

  • In a medium bowl, add flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until combined.
  • Add the cubed butter to the flour mixture. Using your hands or a fork, mix the butter into the flour mixture until the butter pieces are pea-sized or smaller. Sprinkle evenly over the pear mixture.
  • Bake 50-55 minutes, or until the pears are tender and the topping is golden brown. Serve warm.
