About 1/2lb each and delivered ripe, these Asian Pears are crunchy and juicy with a sweet flavor. Asian pears look very similar to apples but with golden skin and white inside. While they look similar to large apples, they taste like pears! They are fantastic raw and served with cheese or sliced on top of a salad.
Better yet, Asian pears are high in fiber and low in calories. They contain a number of micronutrients that play an important role in blood, bone and cardiovascular health, including potassium, Vitamin C, and copper.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees with the rack positioned in the middle. In a 8×13 casserole dish, add the sliced pears, lemon juice, sugar, flour and cinnamon. Mix until ingredients are combined. In a large bowl, add all the topping ingredients together and mix until ingredients are combined and form small lumps. Pour the topping mixture over the pears and spread the mixture evenly. Place the casserole in the center of the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
