  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 pounds ripe pears, peeled and chopped (about 8 pears)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Cooking spray
  • Topping:
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup crystallized ginger, minced (about 4 ounces)
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

To prepare filling, combine the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons flour; toss gently to coat. Spoon filling into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray.

To prepare topping, lightly spoon 3/4 cup flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.
