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


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


  • 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.
