Ginger pear apple crisp is a delicious variation from apple. This version has a crisp buttery topping lightly spiced with ginger. The pears make their own sauce.




  • 4 pears, peeled and chopped
  • 2 apples (not too crisp) peeled and chopped*
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/3 cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp. ginger


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp. ginger
  • 1/31/2 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter, melted

*Can replace apples with additional pears


  • In a large bowl toss the pears and apples with the flour then add the molasses, lemon juice and ginger.
  • In another bowl whisk the rolled oats, flour, brown sugar and ginger. Pour over the melted butter and stir until well blended.
  • Scrape the pear mixture into a good-sized casserole dish (high-sided for a deeper crisp) and top with the flour mixture.
  • Bake at 350 F for 40-60 minute or until filling starts to bubble up. (Actual cooking time will depend on the depth of your baking dish.)
