Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Butter a small gratin dish and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine pears, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and a splash of lemon juice.

In a separate bowl, combine sugar, oats, walnuts, flour, butter and salt. Stir with a fork, or process in a food processor until medium-size crumbles begin to form.

Place the pears in the bottom of the gratin dish. Top with oat mixture and bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until pears are tender and bubbly and the top is golden.
