Fresh Pear Ginger Crisp Recipe

Fresh Pear Ginger Crisp

1 cup crushed gingersnap cookies (about 20 cookies)

½ cup old-fashioned oats

½ cup packed brown sugar

¼ tsp. ground ginger

¼ tsp. ground cloves

1/8 tsp. salt

1/3 cup butter, softened

7 medium pears (about 2 ½ lbs.), peeled and thinly sliced

2 Tbsp. flour

Vanilla ice cream, optional

In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients.  With clean hands, work butter into oat mixture until well combined.  Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Place pears in a small bowl; add flour and toss to coat.  Transfer to a greased 8 inch square baking dish; sprinkle with oat mixture.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 F. for 35-40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and fruit is tender.  Serve warm with ice cream if desired.            9 servings
