Butterscotch Pear Bars

By: Kate Lott

These Butterscotch Pear Bars are a delicious and easy to make dessert that features a buttery oat crust, sweet pears, and a rich butterscotch topping. Perfect for any occasion!

45min serves 6


  • 1 qt canned pears, drained and diced

  • 1 12 oz bag of butterscotch chips (you can substitute 3 cups of Oregon raspberries, blackberries or cranberries - fresh or frozen)

  • 3 tbsp of cornstarch

  • 1 ¼ cup Tillamook Extra Creamy Unsalted Butter, room temperature

  • 1 ½ cup brown sugar

  • 2 ½ cup flour

  • 1 tsp of baking soda

  • 1 tsp of salt

  • 2 ½ cup rolled oats

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Cook pears, butterscotch chips and cornstarch over medium heat until thick and bubbly, stirring often. Let cool slightly.

  3. Cream the butter and brown sugar. Stir in the flour, soda, salt and oats. Mix until well combined.

  4. Grease a 9 x 13 pan and put half of the crumble mixture into the pan. Press well. Pour in the pear mixture and then cover with remaining crumble oat mixture. Pat lightly.

  5. Bake for 25 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. The flavor fully develops 1-2 days after baking. A scoop of Tillamook Vanilla Ice Cream (or many other flavors) and a drizzle of caramel or fruit syrup makes this a wonderful dessert!
