  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Grate enough lemon peel to measure 1/2 tsp. zest. Squeeze enough juice to measure 4-1/2 tsp. Mix 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 2 Tbsp. flour and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon in large bowl. Add pears, lemon zest and juice; toss until pears are evenly coated. Spoon into 8-inch square baking dish.
  • Mix brown sugar and remaining granulated sugar, flour and cinnamon in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture forms coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts; sprinkle over pears.
  • Bake 40 to 45 min. or until topping is golden brown and pears are hot and bubbly. Serve topped with Cool Whip.

Purchasing Pears

Look for pears with a fragrant aroma and coloring characteristic of their variety. Skins should be free from cuts and bruises. A ripe pear is one that feels slightly firm, but gives a bit to gentle pressure at the stem end.


Bake dessert in 9-inch square baking dish or shallow 2-L casserole instead of the 8-inch square baking dish.
