6 servings

Filling Ingredients

6 medium slightly ripe, firm Bartlett pears (about 2 3/4 pounds), peeled, cut
into 1/2-inch slices (about 6 cups)
1/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Topping Ingredients

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cold butter or margarine, cut into pieces
12 vanilla wafer cookies, crushed (about 1/2 cup)


Preheat oven to 375°F (191°C). In large bowl, mix pear mixture ingredients until evenly coated. Spread in ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish.

In same bowl, mix 1/3 cup flour and the brown sugar. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through mixture in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in crushed cookies. Crumble over pears.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until pears are tender and topping is golden brown.
