Directions

  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 skipped the ginger, because I'm not a fan of it, and this came out very tasty. I would use less cinnamon next time to have more pear taste.

Delicious! I thought the amount of ginger was just right without increasing it. I added a handful of dried cranberries to the pear mixture and that was a wonderful touch of tang and color.

The pairing of fresh pears and crystallized ginger are simply beautiful! A classic,"comfort" dessert, with enough elegance to serve for company. I had misplaced a similar recipe years ago, and I was so happy to find yours, Jayda. Thank-you! (I did increase the amount of finely chopped crystallized ginger to a full Tbsp for each tsp stated in recipe. Delicious!)
