Recipe Ingredients for Pear Oatmeal Crisp

1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour (2 1/2 ounces)
1 3/4 oz brown sugar (1 3/4 ounces)
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pinch Table salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter , melted and cooled
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 t lemon zest
3 pounds pears

Recipe Directions for Pear Oatmeal Crisp

  1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Mix flour, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in food processor. Drizzle butter over flour mixture and pulse until mixture resembles crumbly wet sand, about five 1-second pulses, pausing halfway through to scrape down sides and bottom of workbowl. Add oats to food processor and process until evenly incorporated, about three 1-second pulses. Set aside while preparing fruit.

  2. 2. Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and pinch of salt together in large bowl. Peel pears, then halve and core each (see illustrations below). Cut each half into 4 wedges and then cut in half crosswise (pieces should be about 1 1/2 inches). Gently toss pears with sugar mixture and transfer to 8-inch-square baking dish.

  3. 3. Sprinkle topping evenly over fruit, breaking up any large chunks. Bake until fruit is bubbling around edges and topping is deep golden brown, 27 to 32 minutes. Cool on wire rack until warm, at least 15 minutes, and serve.
