    So I had some pears I needed to use up before they went bad and I remember this post. But I have to admit I did not make it the same way because I never pulled the post up to look at it.
    But anyhow, for those of you who know my son Jacob, he hates everything but he keeps asking me to remake the pears, but he request I add some spices like cinnamon and nutmeg to it. He likes to cook. he can also tell what I am making just by smelling it cooking, even if it is something new I am trying.
    So here is my recipe.
    4 pears cut in half and seeds and middle core cleaned out
    flour, I did not measure so maybe 1/2 cup
    Oatmeal, I did not measure anything so I will guess 1 cup
    1/4-1/2 cup butter...just make a crumb topping
    1/2 cup maybe a little less, I just grabbed some out of the bag.
    chopped pecans
    mix flour, oatmeal, nuts, any spices you may add, butter and mix together. Fill cleaned out center of pear with this mixture and bake at 375 until brown. I bet ice cream would be good with this. :o)
