  • Make oatmeal topping: In a large bowl, mix together 1/4 cup flour, light-brown sugar, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, allspice, and a pinch of salt. Stir in oats. Using a pastry blender, two knives, or your fingers, incorporate butter into flour mixture until large, moist clumps form. Refrigerate.

  • In a large bowl, combine pears with lemon juice, thawed berries, 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons flour; toss well. Transfer to a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with chilled topping.

  • Bake until fruit is tender and topping is golden, about 45 minutes. Cool at least 20 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt, if desired.

Cook's Notes

The topping should be kept cold until ready to use; refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 5 days.

I made this for a party and it was gone in less than 10 minutes! There wasn't even enough for everyone because some people got seconds before others could make it to the table! Oh well, I'm guess I did pretty alright with this choice :) I'll just know to make two the next time ;)

So tasty! Doubled the topping the second time around, and added peaches.

Very yummy!! Doubled the crumb topping because it wasn't enough to cover the 8x8 dish when I baked it once before.

I love this recipe! I usually just use strawberries and blueberries (half a bag of each) and it is sooo yummy! It is the best with ice cream on the side but if you live where it is cold you can definitely do without it!

My husband loved it. He's not big on chocolate. I am, so for me it was okay. You MUST have ice-cream along side. The flavors are pretty bold.
