Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 9 by 9-inch baking dish.

In a large mixing bowl stir together the pears, almonds, sugar, flour, vanilla bean, cinnamon, salt, and 2 tablespoons of the butter. Reserve and do not rinse bowl.

Add almond-pear mixture to the prepared baking dish and dot with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.
