Pear-Oatmel Crisp

1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
7 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 (16-0z) cans sliced pears in juice, drained, with
1/3 cup of the juice reserve (lite is best)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (1 2/4-oz) package of cinnamon and spice instant-oatmeal mix

1. Preheat the oven to 425F.
2. Mix 1 tablespoon of the flour, 4 tablespoons of the brown sugar, and the ginger in an 8-inch square baking dish. Add the pears and the reserved pear juice, stirring until blended. Cover the dish with plastic wrap; then prick a few holes in the plastic. Microwave on high until the filling begins to bubble, 4 - 5 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking.

3. Meanwhile, combine the butter and the remaining 3 tablespoons brown sugar in a bowl. Add the oatmeal mix and the remaining 1/2 cup flour; stir until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over the filling. Transfer the dish to the oven and bake until the topping is golden, about 15 minutes. Serve warm
