greek yogurt 52 ways: #29 burnt butter pear ginger crumble
Tracy Benjamin from Shutterbean shared the recipe for this crumble a few weeks ago on her blog. I bookmarked it knowing I had to make it soon. I modified the recipe for 1 person because I knew I would be topping it with Greek yogurt for breakfast (or dessert) for myself. #selfish. The original recipe is for 4-6 people, though, if you're interested in making more.
Let's get to it!
Preheat your oven to 350°. For the filling, combine all of the following in an oven safe bowl or ramekin: 1 peeled, cored, and finely chopped pear; 1 tbsp of sugar; 1 tbsp of brown sugar; 1/8 tsp of cinnamon; 1/4 tbsp of flour; 1/4 peeled and finely chopped ginger; 1/8 tsp of vanilla; and a pinch of salt.
In a separate bowl, combine all of the following to make the topping: 1/4 c of flour, 1 tbsp sugar, and 1/8 cup of rolled oats.* Add 1/8 cup of burnt butter to the mixture just until well combined. You want it to be crumbly.
(*I forgot to grab walnuts at the grocery store, but I'll definitely be adding them to the topping next time).
Top the pear mixture with the oat topping and bake for 35-40 minutes. Finally, allow your crumble to cool for 15 min. or so.
Top with vanilla Greek yogurt (or ice cream!) and a pinch of cinnamon. You loyal readers know I'm looking to lighten my desserts. ;) This crumble is amazing! I wasn't sure I'd like the ginger, but I really did! I'll be adding this recipe to my Greek yogurt recipes for fall.
Other Greek yogurt recipes inspired by Tracy: shortbread strawberry crumble and cinnamon peaches with cookies.
