Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

1 pound (454 grams) pears, ripe but firm
2 cups (200 grams) fresh cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger (powdered is fine, too)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup oat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F and line or grease a 9x9 inch baking dish. Read all of the directions first.
Filling- Peel, core and chop the pears into small pieces. You should have approx. 2.5 cups of pears. Add pears, cranberries, sugar and orange juice to a heavy-bottomed skillet or saucepan. Smile. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until pears soften, cranberries burst, and juices are thickened and jammy (approx 7-10 minutes). Add vanilla, orange zest and fresh ginger and stir to combine. Remove from heat and let cool whilst you sing your favorite song. note- Increase the amount of pears if you'd like a higher filling to crust/crumb ratio.
Crust and Crumble- In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, oat flour, oats and salt. Stir to combine while you think of your most treasured autumn memory. Add butter and vanilla, stir until crumbs are well moistened. note- It may be prudent to cut the amount of dry ingredients in half or to use a larger pan.
Keep 2.5 cups of the mixture (or approximately half) for the topping. Pour the rest into the prepared dish and press them into an even layer. Bake the crust until golden, 10-15 minutes. The perfect amount of time to make a cup of tea. Or pour a glass of wine. Remove from oven and spoon filling evenly over the hot crust, top with reserved crumbs, and return pan to oven. Bake until golden, 20-25 minutes. You could start the dishes, but preferably you start in on your beverage of choice.
Serving Suggestions
Let the bars cool completely before slicing to serve. Whipped cream or ice cream is always good.
