I had 4 pears, so I made 1/2 recipe which was perfect for the 2 of us. The pear mixture was so tasty and we loved the crunch of the topping. Made for ZWT 8.

DELICIOUS! I used seven unpeeled Bosc pears, all whole wheat flour, and because I had no crystallized ginger, I added the zest of one lemon! Made for Spring PAC 2012.

This was absolutely delicious and much better than the recipe I have used in the past. Congrats FN on your week 2 Football Pool win for 2010! This is definitely a keeper recipe. The oats and maple along with ginger gave the pears a wonderful flavor.
