For the crust on top


  • Peel the pears and cut them in chunks
  • Put them in a ceramic baking pan
  • Add 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tbsp of flour,1 pinch of salt, stir well

For the top crust

  • In a blender mix all the ingredients for the crust
  • Lay over the pears
  • Bake for 1 hour at 350 F - 180 C
  • Serve still warm with vanilla or chocolate ice cream



  • Since overripe fruits are usually very sweet I don't add too much sugar. If you like it sweet, you can add more.
  • As I mentioned before you can substitute almond with other nuts and brown sugar with the regular one
  • Bake in a nice ceramic baking dish as the crumble is served in its own baking dish since it cannot be removed without breaking it
  • I add salt to give depth to the flavour, if you don't like it, don't add it
  • I do like the top very crunchy, you can cook it for less if you like it softer
  • Serve still warm with vanilla or chocolate ice cream
