Pear crisp with fresh ginger

This was my first time using fresh ginger and I am hooked. It is delicious - and pairs wonderfully with the sweetness of the pears. Definitely going to make this again soon.

6 ripe pears, cored and cut into bite-sized pieces
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp minced ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
3 Tbsp butter, cut into bits

In a large bowl, toss together the filling ingredients. Pour into a buttered baking dish.

In a second bowl, mix together topping ingredients. Using your fingertips, mash the butter pieces into the mixture until it is an even texture. Pour over top of pear mixture.

Bake in pre-heated oven at 350° for 25 minutes or until pears are soft, not mushy.

Serve warm or cool with whipped cream or heavy cream.
