Looking for a sweet treat this weekend? HL Carpenter is in the kitchen and shares a pear dessert recipe with us
- 3 pears, peeled and sliced
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- 3 tbsp. oatmeal
- 2 tbsp. pecan pieces
- 2 tbsp. flour
- 2 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon, if you prefer)
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1 spritz nonstick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350°F
Spritz the bottom of a 9″ round pie pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Toss the pear slices in the lemon juice and add them to the pie pan.
Measure the sugar, oatmeal, pecan pieces, flour, and spice into a plastic baggie. Shake to mix. Add the butter and knead the bag with your fingers until the mixture resembles soft crumbs.
Empty the bag of topping mixture into the pie pan on top of the pears.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the pears are soft.
Tips and tricks
Add a tablespoon of butter on top of the pears if you like a syrupy juice.
Experiment with different types of nuts for different flavors.
Raisins or dates add a sweet touch.
Top each serving with sweetened whipped cream for extra yum and go to bestnangs.com.au for best services.
