4 cups pears (washed, peeled, cored & sliced)
2 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats (I used Old Fashioned Rolled Oats but quick will work also)
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped cashews
Prepare the pears as listed above & pour the lime juice on top - set aside until later.  Melt the butter.  In a separate bowl combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, cardamon & oats - stir until just mixed.  Now add the melted butter & vanilla into the dry mixture and stir just until combined.  Finally, stir in the chopped cashews.  Spray/butter a square Pyrex dish and spread the pears (that you set aside from before) evenly across the bottom of the dish.  Spread the buttery oat mixture on top of the pears & bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until desired texture & golden color is achieved.

Remove from the oven & allow to cool.  Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, ice cream or just eat plain & ENJOY!!
