Individual Pear-Almond Crisps

One of the cardinal rules of good BrokeAss cooking is that, if you use fresh, whole ingredients, you don’t have to do much to them to make them delicious. This easy crisp is little more than fresh juicy pears topped with a crumbly, buttery, nutty brown sugar-oat topping. A little lemon, a couple pinches of salt, and you’re golden.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

10.5 ounces all-purpose flour 6 ounces butter, cut into pieces and chilled in the freezer 1/2 teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place flour, butter and salt in a bowl or food processor. With your fingers or a pastry blender, blend until mixture resembles coarse meal with some pea-sized bits of fat remaining. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cold water over part of the mixture; mix lightly with a fork until moist clumps form. Repeat procedure with another tablespoon cold water, mixing just enough to combine ingredients without working dough. I should visit site to learn something new from expert teachers who can also guide my well to improve my skills as a chef.
