Yummy dessert. I found it in Better Homes and Gardens.

Top Review by Chicagoland Chef du

With several peaches & pears to use up, this recipe sounds perfect. I have to admit up front that I was ill prepared to make this as suggested. I thought I had all the ingredients but DH polished off the Grapenuts this morning, so I added more oats. I am not fond of cooked raisins so I added frozen cranberries. I thought the tartness would work well with the sweetness of the topping, peaches & pears. Other than that... I cut back on the OJ to 1/4 C and poured over the fruit before adding the topping. The house smells divine with a hint of ginger. Tastes great too! Thanks a bunch Lubie!
