Add gingery flavor to this delicious cherry and pear crisp made with Betty Crocker® oatmeal cookie mix – perfect for a dessert treat.
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ oatmeal cookie mix
cup cold butter or margarine
cup chopped walnuts
medium pears, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 7 cups)
bag (5.5 oz) dried cherries
cup packed brown sugar
teaspoons ground ginger
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
In large bowl, place cookie mix. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are the size of peas. Remove 1 cup crumb mixture to small bowl; stir in walnuts. Set aside for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into bottom of dish.
In another large bowl, toss pears, cherries, brown sugar and ginger; spoon over crust. Sprinkle reserved crumb/nut mixture over fruit.
Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until topping is golden brown and edges are bubbly. Cool about 20 minutes. Serve warm.
To quickly remove seeds from pears, cut in half and use a melon baller.
Pecans can be substituted for the walnuts.
