INGREDIENTS

Filling

6 Buerre Bosc pears, each peeled and cut into six segments, seeds removed
50g sugar zest and juice 1 orange
1 cinnamon stick
1 vanilla pod, split and seeds scraped
1 punnet strawberries, hulled, large halved

Topping

200g plain flour
100g cold butter, diced
90g raw caster sugar 100g raw macadamias, coarsely chopped

METHOD
    Preheat oven to 170°C. 

    Place pears, sugar, orange juice and zest, cinnamon and vanilla pod seeds in a saucepan. Over a moderate heat simmer gently for approximately 15 minutes until the pears soften. Add strawberries and set aside.

    To make the crumble, place the flour, butter, sugar and macadamias in a large bowl and rub the mixture together with your fingers until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

    Spoon the pear mixture into a large ovenproof dish and sprinkle over the topping (alternatively divide the mixture evenly between six small ovenproof dishes and place on a baking sheet before placing in the oven). Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.

    Serve with creme fraiche, cream, Greek yoghurt or vanilla ice cream.
