    Very, very nice crumble, with a tasty combo of fruits, & the topping was great ~ Different from what I usually do, but very nicely so! I did use a pastry cutter to blend the butter with the other ingredients! Next time I'd really enjoy making this one for company! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Oh Pat, this is such a lovely recipe! It is very easy to make, bakes up beautifully and tastes soooooo good! The almond in the topping is so sweet and yummy, just perfect! Ive never tried apple and pear in a crumble before, but they go great together. <br/>I left out the sugar in the filling as my pears were really sweet and that way it was a little tart and a little sweet, which we all really enjoyed.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us!<br/>Made and reviewed for Potluck Tag Game December 2010.

    I loved this. I adjusted it slightly used some canned pears I had leftover and rather than cook the apples in the sugar syrup, cooked them in the leftover pear juice from the can, used Splenda in place of brown sugar in the topping and served with yoghurt. Delicious, thanks Pat!

    *Reviewed for Aussie Forum Recipe Tag Game* THanks for posting this great recipe Pat :) Loved that it used typical gluten-free ingredients and was so quick to put together. The pear and apple combo was really good together. I used brown rice flour and served with some ice-cream. Yum! Photo also being posted


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
