How to make it

  • Combine crust ingredients in glass 9X13 dish adding butter, slowly to get right amount to form mixture able to press into bottom to form crust.
  • Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes until crumbs lose their shiny appearance and just beginning to brown on edge.
  • In medium bowl, combine pears, lemon juice, cornstarch, 1/4 cup brown sugar and nutmeg and toss to combine.
  • Whip cream cheese and add honey. Mix until combined.
  • Add egg and combine, again.
  • Add vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Combine all topping ingredients and cut together until crumbly mix is formed.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture over crust, them top with sliced pears(remove from bowl with slotted spoon so as not to get too much liquid with them.
  • Crumble topping completely over pears.
  • Bake about 45 minutes until brown and bubbly.
  • Cool some before cutting into squares. Serve with ice cream or fresh whipped cream seasoned with a bit of nutmeg, if desired.
  • **Apples can be substituted in this recipe and cinnamon replacing the nutmeg, but I do prefer the pears.

    Made this a couple of weeks ago and it was a hit! The bummer part was my pears didn't have much flavor so I can't wait to try this with better ones. The only teak I would make next time is to do less topping. The men in my life asked for less picky picky! Thanks Keni!
