  • 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.

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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!) Read More

Oh my this is soooooooooo good! I doubled the ginger and also added some chopped toasted almonds and hazlenuts to the oats mixture. I also subbed 1/3 of the pears for chopped apples and it was so delicious.. I had it with fresh cream as I didn't have any ice cream on hand I can't wait to make it again!! Read More

I did as others who reviewed this recipe suggested and doubled the amount of crystalized gigner in both steps. I also added about 1/4 tsp. ground ginger and 1/4 tsp. allspice. I also added an additional tablespoon of butter to the oatmeal/flour topping. I think these changes really made the difference. We enjoyed this recipe. It's a nice change from the typical apple cobblers and crisps. Read More

Yum! Really versatile too... I had only a 9" round cake plate and a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish... didn't have any ginger.. and I added extra cinnamon and just a little bit of ground cloves. I cut up a few extra pears and made double the crumb topping... it worked well and was VERY yummy. Read More

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 the pan. Read More

Super yummy everyone loved it! I used half Bartlett half Anjou pears - made for a nice contrast Also I added a little allspice and a bit extra ginger to both the pears and topping. Since some said the pears were slightly dry I added about 2 tbsp pear butter as well - delicious! Will definitely make again!:o) Read More
