  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart casserole dish or 9 inch square baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1 teaspoon crystallized ginger, and cinnamon. Stir in the butter until the mixture is crumbly with pea sized lumps. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together the white sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and 2 teaspoons of crystallized ginger. Add the sliced pears, and toss to blend. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Spread with the oat topping.
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until pears are soft and topping is golden brown. Cool slightly before serving with vanilla ice cream.

I would have liked to see more "juice" with the pears. It was very dry without the vanilla ice cream. Also I doubled the ginger.

I added blueberries to mine. It was yummy, but why wouldn't fruit and oats be yummy? I wish that the crisp part on top were more solid. Mine ended up loose and much like it was when i put it in ...
