- Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
- In a small bowl use a fork to cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal; stir in oats, sugar, pumpkin seeds, raisins, cinnamon, zest and salt until well-combined.
- Cut a thin slice off the rounded side of each pear half so that pears will sit flat; place pear halves on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle 1 1/2 Tbsp crumble topping over each pear half; bake until crumble is golden and pears are tender, about 25-30 minutes. Serve hot or warm.
