  5. dust hands with powdered sugar or flour and form dough into smooth ball.

  6. Press into a deep pizza pan or cast iron pan(12in works best) See Photo . I went up the sides, but it turned out to not be necessary. :)

  7. Sprinkle with butterscotch chips. See Photo Bake in 350 over for about 15 minutes, until browning on edges and set through.

  8. Meanwhile:

  9. For Rhubarb/Pear Filling Combine all ingredients and toss well. Set aside while crust is baking.

  10. For Streusel Topping Combine all ingredients with pastry blender, fork, or your hands, to create coarse crumbs.

  11. When cookie crust is done, top with the fruit mixture(if much liquid is rendered, use a slotted spoon), then sprinkle with the streusel topping. See Photo Bake for about 20 minutes, more, til fruit is warmed through, topping and crust are browned.

  12. Let cool a bit(as you can see from the pic..."we" didn't follow this advice, so it came out less pretty than subsequent, let cool slightly See Photo . ;)

  13. Wonderful with vanilla ice cream.
