The count down to Thanksgiving continues here in America. In households across the country people are planning their holiday feast; turkey, stuffing, gravy, potatoes, cranberry sauce and of course, desserts. Yes, desserts plural. At least in my house it is desserts plural. Yes, there will gluten-free pumpkin pie as well as pecan pie and something chocolate. And always, always something with fruit.
I got to thinking about really celebrating the food of the season this year and decided what could be more perfect than a pear and cranberry crumble? Pears are really at their peak right now, juicy, lush and sweet and of course cranberries are ubiquitous around the holidays. Gluten-free, dairy-free, sweet, crunchy and best of all, simple, this crumble is special enough for a Thanksgiving feast but easy and homey enough for a weeknight dinner. Kind of perfect, right?
What dessert(s) do you serve for your special feasts?
Pear Cranberry Almond Crumble

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
