Choose ripe but firm pears. You don't want them to be too soft or they will disintegrate during cooking.
Toss pears with walnuts, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
Generously butter a cast iron skillet and add the filling.
Whisk together the flour, brown sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter until it's broken into small pieces.
Sprinkle the topping evenly over the filling. Bake until topping is golden brown and the juices are thick and bubbly.
Serve the crisp warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
