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.
