* 6 pears, peeled and sliced (I didn’t peel the pears; too much work, especially when the peel is actually quite good)
* 1 TBSP ground ginger
* 1/2 C. brown sugar
* 2 tsp ground cinnamon
* 2 TBSP butter, cut into bits
* 1/4 c. flour (we used freshly ground whole wheat)
* 3/4 c. oats
* 1/4 c. brown sugar
* 1/4 c. sugar
* 1 tsp ground cinnamon
* 6 TBSP butter
Toss first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Pour into a buttered baking dish.
Using a fork, combine the topping ingredients. Spread over pears. Bake at 350 degrees (fahrenheit) for 30 minutes, or until brown & bubbly.
The original recipe called for raisins to be mixed in with the pears; I think they’d prove an un-necessary distraction, but perhaps you feel differently.
Note: I happen to know that this is good becaus there was a whole pan left when I went to my grandparents’ this morning, and when I returned in the afternoon it was gone. Not a smidgen left. Very frustrating, and nothing left to do but bury myself in the solace of a big mug of chocolate milk.
