Fresh Pear and Blueberry Crumble

I've never been a big fan of pie; or so I thought.  What I realized was that I was not a fan of dense crust filled with goo.  (Obviously I haven't had many good pies!)  This recipe was created to fulfill my craving for a light, fresh "pie" without the fuss.

"Fresh pears and juicy blueberries combine for just the right amount of sweetness!"

2 large pears (3 cups), peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
3 Tbs. sugar
1 Tbs. flour

1 cup oats
2 Tbs. flour
3 Tbs. butter, cut into pea sized bits
2 Tbs. brown sugar
2 Tbs. sliced almonds (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1.     In a large mixing bowl, add pears, blueberries, lemon zest and sugar.  Gently mix to combine.

2.     Sprinkle flour over mixture; gently mix again.

3.     In a mixing bowl, combine oats, flour and brown sugar.  Add butter and toss.

4.     Spoon fruit mixture into 4 small ramekins (or 1 pie dish)

5.     Sprinkle crumble mixture over the fruit. 

6.     Bake for 45 minutes; the filling will bubble.

7.     Serve and enjoy!
