Fruit crisps are always a welcome treat, but the combination of pears with ginger is a delicious fall twist on the usual berry or stone fruit crisps of summer, and the ubiquitous apple crisps that usher in the cool weather. 


  • 4 ripe Bartlett or Anjou pears 
  • 2-inch piece   Ginger, fresh, peeled and grated 
  • ½ cup Raisins 
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar 
  • 1/3 cup All-Purpose Flour 
  • 1/3 cup Rolled Oats, uncooked 
  • 1/4 cup Dark or Light Brown Sugar 
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon 
  • Pinch Nutmeg and Salt 
  • 1 stick (4 oz) Unsalted Butter, melted 


  1. PREHEAT the oven to 400 degrees F. 
  2. PEEL, CORE, and thickly SLICE the pears.  
  3. TOSS the pears with the 2 tablespoons sugar, grated ginger and raisins in a medium mixing bowl.   
  4. EMPTY the bowl into a deep, buttered 2-quart baking dish. The fruit should be at least 2 1/2-inches deep in the pan; ADD more fruit, if necessary. 
  5. STIR together the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a mixing bowl. DRIZZLE in the melted butter. TOSS the ingredients with a fork to blend. (Do not over mix, keep it crumbly.)   
  6. SPRINKLE the topping over the pears, PAT down gently.  
  7. BAKE for 30 minutes, until pears are tender and the topping is browned. SERVE warm. 

Tip: If  you find it difficult to peel the ginger with a vegetable peeler, scrape away the skin with edge of a teaspoon. It will scrape off easily!
