- 4 pears peeled, cored and sliced
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon optional

For the Topping:
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 3 tbsp butter cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch cubes

In a bowl toss peeled, cored, and sliced pears with the brown sugar, lemon juice and optional cinnamon. Place in a low sided gratin type casserole dish.
