I created this to have a little bit healthier dessert and use some fresh pears I had. My family enjoyed it, and I wanted to post it before I forget! Make sure to use ripe, juicy pears.
Great served with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
In a bowl, toss pears with cornstarch. Add in cranberries, vanilla and brown sugar and stir gently to coat pears. Pour into an 8x8 pan.
Mix dry ingredients for topping. Stir in melted butter and vanilla. Crumble over fruit mixture.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15-20 minutes more or until topping is lightly golden and pears are tender. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
