Ingredients

  • Pears: ripe medium pears.
  • Ginger: use a spoon to peel ginger.
  • Lemon: we need the juice of one lemon.
  • Butter: unsalted cold butter.
  • Gluten-free flour: you can use any gluten-free flour. I use buckwheat flour and coconut flour. You may have to change a bit the amounts according to the flour you choose. Sometimes I use gluten-free rolled oats too.
  • Almonds: ground almonds for the crumble and chopped almonds to finish the dessert

How to make pear crisp

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Peel the pears, remove the seeds, and cut them into cubes. Peel the ginger with a spoon, chop it and mix it with the pears.

Place the fruits in a baking dish and sprinkle with lemon juice.

Process the flours with the very cold butter cut into cubes. Process until crumbs form (you can also use your hands)

Mix them with the sugar and ground almonds.

Place the crumble on top of the pears and add some roasted and sliced almonds.

Cook for 30/35 minutes or until the cover is well browned and crispy.

Serve it warm or cold with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.

Variations

You can replace the gluten-free flour with the one you have at home. You should only check the amounts. With almond flour, it goes very well too. You can also add gluten-free rolled oats.

Storing

You can store the dessert in the fridge for 3/4 days. I don’t recommend freezing, it’s not the same, but If you freeze it, when you are ready to enjoy it, reheat the crumble in the oven for 10 minutes.
