Asian Pear Crumble
- 2-3 large Asian pears, cored and sliced
- juice of half a lemon
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 350º. Peel and core the pears and then slice them about 1″ thick. Put the slices into a bowl waiting with the juice of half a lemon making sure that each new addition is coated in lemon juice.
In a bowl combine the flour and sugar. Add the cinnamon and salt. Add the cubed butter and combine. I like to use a pastry blender. You can also use a food processor or a mixer. You want larger bits of butter than you would for a pastry crust. Pearl size.I used a smaller baking dish wanting just to make enough for my family to eat dessert with none left over. If you want to make this for more people, double the crumble recipe and use a whole lemon.
Pour your fruit into the baking dish and cover it with the crumble topping. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until it is golden and bubbly.
