For a real treat, use Asian pears for this recipe. They maintain their crispness and are sooo much better than regular pears!
- 1 1/2 cups ginger snaps, crumbled
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 3 peeled, ripe pears, cut in half (or thick slices if using Asian pears)
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
Mix together the crumbs, brown sugar, salt and butter. Place half of the crumbs into a buttered, 8-inch round baking dish. Place pears, add remaining crumb mix. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream and/or whipped cream.
Is it bad of me that I use both ice cream and whipped cream on top?!
