Ingredients

Filling:

  • 1 pie crust store-bought or homemade
  • 6 pears cored and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter melted

Topping:

  • 1 cup flour all-purpose
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter cold, cut into cubes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out crust to 1/8th of an inch thickness and lay into a 9-inch pie pan, pressing into the pan. Trim excess and crimp as desired.
  2. Toss pears with brown sugar, melted butter and spices in a large bowl. Set aside while you make the topping.
  3. Put all topping ingredients in a small bowl and with your forefinger and thumb, squish the butter and rub it into the sugar and flour. Repeat until all the butter is incorporated and there is no flour or sugar mixture left in the bottom of the bowl. You should be able to squish the crumb topping together in your hand and it will hold its shape.
  4. Pour the fruit into the pie pan, scraping the juices into the crust. Scatter the topping over the fruit evenly. 

  5. Bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes or until bubbly and topping is golden brown.
