Tart apples and juicy pears combine with the warmth of ginger and cinnamon for this amazing dish. And the best part? The Shortbread Crumble, of course! It’ll definitely have you requesting seconds!
When I was testing this recipe the first time, a 9×13 pan lasted less than 24 hours in our house. We only have five people that live in our home…
