Pear Crisp Recipe With Ginger and Pecans


Pear Crisp Recipe with Ginger and Pecans

Pear, ginger, and pecans come together beautifully in this fall pear crisp.  Serve warm with ice cream for a delightful dessert.

I was ecstatic to find pears on sale at Safeway this week because I love to make this delicious Pear Crisp Recipe with Ginger and Pecans that I top with vanilla ice cream.  It’s the perfect fall treat for pears that are in season and as fresh as ever.

To make the crisp, you simply slice 4 pears and mix them with a little organic turbinado sugar, lemon juice, and some minced ginger. 

Place in a skillet, or baking dish of your choice and top with a granola crisp topping.

I took a shortcut with the topping and used the Open Nature Honey Nut granola, which is delicious on its own, but when combined with a touch of sugar, butter, and chopped pecans, becomes the perfect topping for any fruit crisp, especially this pear crisp!

  • 4 Bartlett pears, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2.5 tablespoons raw turbinado sugar

Crisp Topping

  • 1.5 cups Open Nature Honey Nut Granola (may substitute any granola)
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 2.5 tablespoons raw turbinado sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter softened


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a bowl, combine pears, turbinado sugar, lemon juice and ginger. Toss gently to coat pears.  Pour into skillet or baking dish.
  • In a separate bowl, prepare crisp topping ingredients.  The butter should be "cut" into the granola and chopped pecans.  You can do this with a fork until every piece of granola is coated with a touch of butter.    Spread  topping over fruit in skillet or baking dish
  • Bake pear crisp for 30 minutes or until the top is browned and fruit is bubbling.  Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
