For the Pear Filling
  • 4 bosc pearspeeled and diced
  • 1/2stick butter
  • 1/2cup organic sugar
  • 1/2tsp cardamom powdercardamom extract works well too
  • 1/4tsp vanilla extractor 1 vanilla bean pod
For the Crumble
  • 1 1/2cups oats
  • 1cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2cup brown sugar
  • 1stick butter
  • 1/2cup chopped white chocolate discs (or chips)(optional)
  1. In a saute pan, melt half of stick of butter over medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the diced pears, sugar, and cardamom. Make a long slit in the vanilla bean, and, using the tip of your knife, remove the inside of the vanilla bean, and add it to the bowl. Add the entire contents to the melted butter on your stovetop. I usually throw in entire vanilla pod into the pan for good measure. Stir well so the pears are coated in the butter and sugar.
  3. Let the pears cook over the heat for approximately 15 minutes. Stir the pear mixture periodically. Remove the vanilla pod at the end and discard.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the crumble ingredients, except the white chocolate. Mix well with your hands until the mixture is dry, but clumpy and damp. If it is too wet, you can add some more oats and flour. If too dry and crumbly, add a little water.
  5. If you like, add some white chocolate into the crumble, and mix well again.
  6. In a lightly buttered pan, add the pear mixture. Top with the crumble.
  7. Bake in the oven for approximately 25 minutes. Serve warm, and, if desired, with vanilla ice cream. ENJOY!
