Malaysian Baked Papaya With Ginger

A different version of baked papaya than the previous one I posted. This version has a crunchy filling/topping with pistachios, raisins, and ginger. If you don't care for raisins too much (like me), feel free to reduce the amount or leave them out entirely. If you need to leave out the pistachios, just sub in extra cookie crumbs to make up for some texture and volume. For another variation, use Greek yogurt in place of the heavy cream, and almonds in place of the pistachios. Adapted from Thai & Asian cookbook, untried by me. Posted for ZWT
