I was home and after some thinking, I was like “I want something sweet”. Lucky for me I keep emergency crisp topping in the freezer! I had those beautiful pears I got @Costco and I keep a chunk of ginger in my freezer so I didn’t have to do much of anything!
First I chopped the ginger into tiny little bits.
Then I chopped up the pears and tossed them with the ginger, brown sugar and some spices.
I popped it into the oven for 20 minutes and then added my already made pecan crisp topping.
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 cup butter chopped into pieces
- 1/2 cup pecans
To make the crumb topping:
In a medium sized bowl mix flour, sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg into the bowl. Add the butter and using a pastry blender or fork mix until coarse crumbs form. Stir in ½ cup pecans. Sprinkle on top of apples.
I baked it until the crisp was crispy and I could see the juices bubbling up over the sides.
A scoop of ice cream later and it was on! I would show a picture of a cute little slice, but it was eaten before I remembered to take one…
