Pears and crystallized ginger are baked under a crispy golden oat crust.
Original recipe makes 6 servings
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon finely chopped crystallized ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
8 cups peeled and sliced pears
1 pint vanilla ice cream
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart casserole dish or 9 inch square baking dish.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
