Pear-Cinnamon Streusel Squares

If you can not find Cinnamon Chips for this recipe you can use milk chocolate chips. I found the cinnamon chips at the bulk barn. This recipe came from the Better Homes and Gardens The Ultimate Cookie Book. The pear cinnamon combination is so good. I will be making these again.

Pear-Cinnamon Streusel Squares


2 cups unbleached flour
1 1/4 cups large flake oatmeal
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup white sugar
2 tbsp. unbleached flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups chopped, peeled and cored pears or apples
3/4 cup cinnamon flavored chips
powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350ยบ.
Lightly grease a 9"X13" baking pan; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine 2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar and ground cinnamon.
With a pastry blender cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Remove 1 1/2 cups of this mixture; set aside for topping.
Take the remaining oat mixture and press into bottom of the baking dish.
Bake for 15 minutes.

In a medium sized bowl beat eggs and white sugar, until mixture is smooth with a whisk.
Whisk in 2 tbsp. flour.
Then whisk in baking powder and salt.
Stir in pears and cinnamon chips.
Gently spread fruit mixture over hot crust that you baked.
Sprinkle the saved oat crumble over the pear mixture.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool in pan on a wire rack.
Cut into squares.
When serving dust with icing sugar.
Or you can make a icing sugar icing and drizzle over square.
Make about 32 squares.
