Our grandmother used to make the best fruit pies, but unfortunately, we didn’t inherit her “baking gene” (although we did inherit her love of casinos). Luckily, we have found the perfect recipe that is easy enough for a novice yet (almost) as good as grandma’s.

3/4 cup regular oats
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash of salt
2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces

3 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled Anjou pear (2 large)
2 cups fresh cranberries $
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
Remaining ingredient:
1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pastry shell

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. To prepare streusel, combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal.
3. To prepare filling, combine pear, cranberries, 2/3 cup brown sugar, and cornstarch in a large bowl; toss well to combine. Spoon pear mixture into pastry shell; sprinkle streusel over pear mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until bubbly and streusel is browned. Cool at least 1 hour on a wire rack.
