I thought I would share this dessert recipe that I recently found on a great website http://www.mapi.com/
I have made it a few times, once with ghee and once with butter. Both are divine, but the one with the ghee is especially divine!
Ginger Pear Crisp
Comfort food at its best!
- 3 pears, peeled, seeded and chopped juice of 1 lemon
- 4 Tablespoons fresh ginger
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 cup ghee
In a medium saucepan, combine the first 3 ingredients and bring to a low simmer for 10-12 minutes. In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and fold in room temperature ghee in order to create a crumblike texture when stirred together well. Separate the mixture into two equal portions. Press half of the mixture into a 5 x 9 inch baking pan which is approximately 4 inches deep. Make a smooth crustlike layer covering the entire bottom. Remove the pear mixture from the stove and pour over the first layer in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top of the fruit layer and bake uncovered in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 40 mins. Cool on a rack until the mixture has settled solidly into the pan. Enjoy!
