NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Topping:
  • 1/4 cup oat flour or whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • Filling:
  • 3 pounds firm but ripe pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced-fat vanilla ice cream or frozen vanilla yogurt, optional
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

For the topping: Combine the ingredients in a medium bowl and work together with a fork or with your fingertips until the ingredients are moistened.

For the filling: Combine the pears slices, lemon juice, and ginger in a large bowl. Add the sugar and flour and toss to blend.

Spray an 8 by 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Transfer the pear mixture to the dish. Sprinkle the topping over the pears. Bake crumble until the pears are tender and the topping is golden brown, about 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature, with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.

iA terrible recipe. I just wish that friends of this crumble did not write glowing reviews unless they cooked like I did only to find my time wasted, the spicing overwhelming, and the timing wrong. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading all the rave reviews I selected this for a large crowd. It did not live up to its reviews. The ginger overwhelmed the pears and it just cried out for more flavor. I do not recommend this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this and have made it for a few different holidays. I usually use apples and pears for some different flavors. It can easily be done gluten free too with gf oats and gf flour mix. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was simple to make and it was delicious! I liked being able to taste a little bit of ginger every now and then, but it wasn't overpowering. I will definitely be making it again. My husband loved it, too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have this recipe so many times AND I have tried it using different fruits. Tonight I am using fresh peaches which are in season right now. Plus I will add some fresh blueberries as well!! Yummy summer dessert! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really good, I had really ripe pears and it was not soggy. Definitely need vanilla ice cream to make it complete. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavors were good, but the crumble came out a little bit watery. I made it for my mom and boyfriend, and my mom said "this is good, it tastes healthy"....I don't know how I feel about a dessert tasting healthy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love, love, love this recipe. Easy, tasty and the family loved it. I used butter instead of oil and added slivered almonds to the crumble. Deeelish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe turned out great though i did tweak it a bit. I took the advice of another reviewer and substituted one apple for one of the pears, used two tablespoons of butter instead of oil, and made one and a half times of the crumble. It was delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this to take to my brothers for christmas. Everyone loved it. Simple and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
