Roasted Pear Crumble by Chez Us

*inspired by Bon Appetit

** serves 4


  • 2 ripe but still firm Red Bartlett pears
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pistachios, shelled
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons maple shavings from Tonewood Maple Cube
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese

How To:


  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Cut the pears in half and core.  Place in a baking dish.
  3. Lightly drizzle a small amount of olive oil over each half.
  4. Place in the oven and roast for 15 – 20 minutes until slightly golden and soft.
  5. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  6. While the pears are roasting toss the pistachios, oats, maple shavings and 1 tablespoon of olive oil together in a mixing bowl.  Spread out on a baking sheet.
  7. Toast until golden, stirring often to prevent burning.  It will only take about 5 – 8 minutes.  Let cool.
  8. Place a dollop of mascarpone cheese on a serving place and top with a pear half.  Sprinkle with the crumble mixture.
  9. Serve.
  10. Eat.
