Ginger Pear Cobbler Crisp

We are in the middle of a snow storm here in the Reno foothills.  I'm not complaining because we need the water to survive around here.  Part of me wants to go play in it, snap pictures of the beauty, but the other part of me wants to snuggle up by the fire or turn on the oven and bake something sweet, warm, and delicious!  I compromised this time.  After playing and snapping, I decide it's a great day to stay indoors and cook.

The last big snow storm we had I made this ginger pear cobbler crisp.  So, here's one for the snowy weekend.


2 large ripe pears, peeled and sliced
1 T sugar
2/3 c oats
1 tsp cinnamon
2 T crystallized ginger pieces
3/4 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 c milk
dash of cinnamon on top

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a 9 x 9 glass baking pan.  In a bowl mix the pears, sugar, oats, cinnamon and ginger.  Pour into the pan.  Then mix the remaining ingredients and place over the pears.  Stir only slightly.  Add a few drops of butter and a dash of cinnamon.  Bake for 40 minutes or so.  This is better as it gets cold in the refrigerator, but hard to resist when it comes out of the oven.  The warmth of the ginger makes it a perfect and simple snack cake.
