Nutty and Buttery Pear Crumble

I had an overabundance of pears and searched vigilantly for recipes I could use my pears in. I was excited to find this nutty and buttery pear crumbled, which uses walnuts instead of oatmeal for a great crunchy flavor. And sweetened with maple syrup! It's so good!

3 1/2 lb pears, cubed
2/3 C maple syrup (the real stuff!!! no cheating here!)
1 T minced crystallized ginger
1 C raisins

1 C walnuts, chopped
1 C flour
2/3 C brown sugar
1/2 C butter, cold

Mix all of the ingredients together except the topping.

Press into a 9x13 baking pan.

Combine the flour, brown sugar, and walnuts. Add the butter, pinching it with your fingers until it is well blended. Sprinkle over the top of the pears.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-55 minutes, depending on the ripeness of your pears. Mine were very underripe and took almost an hour. When you see it bubbling, it's done.

Would go fantastic with vanilla ice-cream!
