I found the initial batter really, really dry I couldn't have 'dropped' it anywhere except the bin, but added more pears than stated here, also wizzed two in the blender with a spot of milk and added to make batter. Next time I'll be adding more walnuts too. The final taste was ok, but the ginger really couldn't be tasted. Kinda not very "cookie"- like either. - 21 Sep 2013
Very good. Pears gave a light, sweet flavor while the spices added body. Yummy. - 14 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yummy! What a great way to use up pears! I added lots more cinnamon and ginger, zest of an orange and golden raisins. I omitted the walnuts for my two year old, but they would've been great too. Hubby and child loved it - I'll definitely make this one again!!! Thanks for a great recipe! - 08 Feb 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
