This crispy gingersnap topping can go atop any of your favorite crumb-topped pie recipes. Just follow your recipe and substitute this for the topping. It is especially good on top of apple or pear pies. For an added ginger-y treat, add 1/4 cup of chopped candied ginger to your pie filling.
For the perfect topping, add brown sugar to your whipping cream instead of white or powdered sugar.
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coarsely chopped gingersnaps (the crispy kind)
5 Tablespoons butter, softened
Mix first 4 ingredients in a bowl. Cut in the butter until it forms crumbs.
Sprinkle over the top of your favorite pie recipe and bake according to your recipe.
