Crumble Topping Recipe:
1cup(4.4 oz) almond flour or other gluten free flour
3/4cup(3.75 oz) packed gluten-free dark brown sugar
4ounces(8 Tablespoons) cold unsalted butterdiced
1/2cup(2 ounces) gluten-free rolled oats
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt butter in a 9-inch cast iron skillet on stove top over medium heat. Add diced pears and walnuts in an even layer over the butter and allow to cook for 1 minute. Remove pan from heat and add cinnamon, salt, and vanilla extract. Mix with a spoon to combine, then spread into an even layer again.
Add flour and brown sugar to a medium mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Use a pastry blender or your fingers to cut the chilled butter into the flour, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gently mix in the rolled oats. Sprinkle everything evenly over the pear-walnut mixture.
Transfer skillet to the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, until the crumble is lightly browned and bubbling at the edges. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving in bowls with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
