Pear Crisp

My latest bounty from Wednesday night Bible class - pears!

Pear Crisp
8 servings

4 pears, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
for topping
1 cup flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed

Toss pears with orange juice; place in a small greased baking dish. Combine the sugar, cinnamon, allspice and ginger; sprinkle over pears. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar and baking powder; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over pears. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and fruit is tender. Serve warm and enjoy!
Have a wonderful weekend!
