Pear-Cinnamon Streusel Squares
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together the 2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Remove 1-1/2 cups of the oats mixture for topping; set aside. Press the remaining oats mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, for filling, in a medium bowl, combine eggs and granulated sugar. Stir in the 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in pears and cinnamon pieces. Spread filling evenly over hot crust. Sprinkle with the reserved oats mixture.
- Bake for 30 to 35 minutes more or until top is golden. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Drizzle with Powdered Sugar Icing. Makes 32 bars.
Powdered Sugar Icing
- In a small bowl combine powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, and corn syrup. Stir in enough additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to reach thick drizzling consistency.

I made these for a wedding dessert buffet. They were easy to make and held together very well, unlike some fruit square recipes I had tried in the past. I did make some changes the second time I made them. I omitted the cinnamon chips and added 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to the pears and doubled the pears. I used melted white chips and a little bit of coconut oil for the glaze instead. Even doubling the pears, they still held together and could be eaten out of hand.
