A simple, tasty dessert that takes advantage of the pear harvest. The brown sugar-cinnamon taste and crisp crust make this a recipe to remember

Very tasty and simple. Not sure if I arranged the pears correctly but it did look nice. My pears weren't as ripe as they could've been so I drizzled a little melted butter on top to give it a little more moisture.
