This classic pear crisp is enlivened by freshly grated ginger. The toasted pecan topping is good enough to stand on it's own. A fragrant dollop of whipped cream infused with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg is a delicious addition when serving.

    I. Love. This. Crisp! Pears are my fiance's favorite fruit, and I absolutely love them too, so when I found beautiful pears on sale recently I knew I had to make something wonderful with them. This was the perfect choice! The only thing I did differently was to add a wee bit more sugar to the whipped cream, and a tad more spice. Thank you for sharing!!

    Very, yummy! I added about 1/4 cup of whole rolled oats to the topping for some crunch. We substituted vanilla ice cream for the spiced whipped cream.
