prickly pear crisp

1 cup of flour
2-inch piece of fresh ginger
3/4 cup of brown sugar
6 Tablespoons of butter
1 cup of pecans, chopped
6 Bosc pears

Add flour, ginger, and brown sugar into a food processor and pulse until ginger is finely chopped. Add the butter and pulse to incorporate. Finally add the pecans and combine until fully incorporated.

Use a mandolin to cut the pears into paper thin slices. Arrange the pear slices evenly into a buttered glass pie pan (slightly overlapping). Add the pecan mixture on top of the pears.

Bake at 400 for about 30 minutes. Serve warm.
