DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cut out and discard stems and cores from dried pears.
  • Chop into 1/2-inch pieces to yield about 1 cup.
  • In a small saucepan, bring the dried pear pieces and pear juice to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer until the pears are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, core the fresh pears, chop into bite-sized pieces and place them in a 1-1/2-quart or 8-inch square baking dish.
  • Melt butter in large saucepan and remove it from the heat.
  • Add the brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Stir to coat the oats evenly.
  • When the dried pears are tender, pour them with their cooking liquid over the fresh pears in the baking dish.
  • Top with the oat mixture.
  • Bake uncovered for 45 minutes or until topping is crisp and brown.
  • Serve warm with optional ice cream or whipped cream.
