COZY | COOKING

By now you've probably been into at least one store that is F U L L of Christmas products. It's crazy to us that it is already that time of year! Before we jump into all things Christmas though, we can't forget about Thanksgiving! A fun time to reflect on all of the things we're [ thankful ] for! Family, friends, food [ definitely the food! ] We just really love Thanksgiving! 

This blog we're featuring a yummy dessert from 'The Year of Cozy' book! To say that we're obsessed with this book would be an understatement. It features 125 recipes, crafts and other homemade adventures. You will definitely be the host with the most [ or everybody's favorite guest! ] if you bring out this delicious burnt butter-pear-ginger crumble! 

I N G R E D I E N T S : 
FILLING: 
3-4 baking pairs, peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/2" knob peeled ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
CRUMBLE TOPPING: 
1 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup unsalted, butter
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

1. To make the filling: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. No need to dirty a bowl: In an 8"x8" baking dish, combine the pears, sugars, flour, ginger, vanilla and salt. Toss until the pears are thoroughly coated. Set aside. 

2. To make the topping: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, oatmeal and walnuts. 

3. In a small saucepan set over medium-high heat, add the cubed butter. Brown the butter until it goes from yellow and bubbling to a very, very dark brown color. It might appear burnt (and it is), but not to worry, it'll taste delicious! 

4. Pour the burnt butter into the medium bowl that's holding the flour and oat mixture. Using a spoon, stir the mixture until it's clumpy and everything is coated in butter. 

5. Pour the crumble atop the filling and spread it out evenly. Transfer to the oven to bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the crumble is bumbling and the top is golden brown. 

While waiting for your crumble to bake, garnish your plates with some leftover chopped almonds + pears. Presentation is key [ we like to make it a little fancy! ] 

You also can't forget to set the table with all things F A L L for this festive holiday. We love using these felt pumpkins + accents of gold [ of course! ] to make our table Thanksgiving-ready. These placemats are also the perfect addition with their 'Give thanks' detailing. 

& when your crumble is out of the oven + ready to eat [ Y U M ! ] dish it up with a scoop - or 2! - of ice cream and enjoy with your favorites! 

Happy Thanksgiving, Queens! What are you most thankful for this year? Share with us on our social media @kittsona!
