Pair this crisp with Brennan's Vanilla Ice Cream


Preheat oven to 375.

Combine pears and lemon juice in a 2-quart baking dish; toss gently to coat. Combine granulated sugar, cornstarch, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; stir with a whisk. Add cornstarch mixture to pear mixture; toss well to coat.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar, and salt in a food processor; pulse 2 times or until combined. Add chilled butter; pulse 6 times or until mixture resembles course meal. (This can also be done with a pastry cutter or two forks.) Add oats and walnuts; pulse 2 times. Sprinkle flour mixture evenly over pear mixture.

Bake 375 for 40 minutes or until pears are tender and topping is golden brown.
