2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup honey
1 cup crushed graham crackers
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon apple-pie spice
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3 pears (about 2 lb.), peeled, cored and cut into 1-inch chunks


1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Stir lemon juice with honey and 1/2 cup water in a small bowl until blended. In a separate bowl, blend graham cracker crumbs with sugar and apple-pie spice, then stir in melted butter.

2. Layer pears in an 11-by-7-inch baking dish and sprinkle with half of crumb mixture. Pour honey mixture over pears and sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture. Bake about 25 minutes, until pears are tender when pierced with a knife, topping is golden brown and juices are bubbling. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, or let cool, cover and refrigerate to serve cold.
