Test Kitchen Tip: For best results, use firm, ripe pears that just yield to gentle pressure.
Apple and Cranberry Crumble Pie: Prepare as directed. Use 6 apples, cored, peeled and sliced, in place of the pears.
Ginger Pear and Cranberry Crumble Pie: Prepare as directed. Omit cinnamon and allspice. Use 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Ginger in the pear mixture and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger in the crumb topping
