Crumbles usually come in two flavors – rhubarb or apple – and usually only come in one season – Summer. That's why our Christmas Crumble is such a unique Winter recipe, combining our Fruity Pear Mince recipe with a crunchy and appealing layer of almonds and marzipan. Served in individual pots, these are wonderful for hosting, or just a special December dessert. If you're not a fan of marzipan (it can be quite divisive) add in some rolled oats instead. Voilá!
