Pear and Ginger Crisp
This delicious pear crisp, spiced with ginger, is a wonderful fall dessert. When it's fresh out of the oven and still hot, it's especially good with ice cream.
The slight heat of ground ginger brings out the sweetness of the pears. Ground gingerroot is far more intense and peppery than fresh. If you prefer only a hint of ginger, omit it from the topping.
