    Cat R.'s Note:

    These individual pear crisps are from the BBC Good Food website, by Mary Cadogan. It's not a crumble type crisp, but a nice change if you've been eating oaty fruit crumbles all winter. As the topping has no butter it is a lighter option, and it also doesn't have any wheat flour, so is good for anyone avoiding that. When I made this, my 3 pears were past their best so ended up with only 3 instead of 4 portions. When cooking the pears, I omitted the sugar, used orange juice (ran out of lemons), whiskey and spiced it with some ginger. As it is practically fat-free I had no qualms about serving it with a dollop of cream...

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    desserts

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If you're going to cook this immediately, preheat the oven to 160C/ gas 3 while you cook the pears on the hob. Otherwise you can leave the preheating until you're ready to cook the topping.(e.g. I made my pear filling ahead of time, so heated the oven while I made the topping).
    2. 2
      Peel (if desired), core and chop pears into small chunks.
    3. 3
      Place in a saucepan with lemon juice and sugar. Bring to the boil, then cover and cook for 10 minutes. Uncover and cook for a further 8-10 minutes to allow the liquids to thicken up.
    4. 4
      Divide between 4 ramekins, and if using, top with the liqueur.
    5. 5
      Sift the icing sugar and cocoa together, then stir in the ground almonds.
    6. 6
      Whisk the egg white until stiff, then fold into the dry ingredients. (It also works the other way round -- so don't worry).
    7. 7
      When the cocoa sugar almond mixture is combined with the egg white, it should be a stiff dropping consistency. Top the pear filled ramekins with it, it will spread and puff during cooking so it doesn't have to reach the edges or be enormously neat.
    8. 8
      Bake in the oven at 160 C/gas 3 until the topping is firm to the touch - 20-25 minutes. Serve hot or cold.
