Gingersnap Pears

I made this recipe looked like an easy fruit crisp, and I happened to have all the ingredients on hand. It was a huge hit with our guest. I'm sure it would be just as delicious with fresh pears.—Dodi Mahan Walker, Peachtree City , Georgia

    I have a big Costco box of canned pears to get through. I decided to try this out. It was simple and yummy (I was hesitant about baking canned pears since they are already soft). I will keep making this recipe to use up the box.
