Fruit Crisp with Almond Crumb and Lavender Whipped Cream~by Lunch Lady Catering

As I cruised through the produce section at my favorite market the other day, I saw a pile of bosc pears which I felt were gently calling my name. I gladly responded by buying a couple of pounds to enjoy throughout the week. Near the pears, I found fresh blueberries on sale, and began concocting a recipe in my head. At this time of year, baking is always on my mind, and mixing the pears and blueberries, both highly aromatic fruit, in a delicate and simple baked crumble served warm with some softly whipped cream sounded like the perfect drizzly evening dessert. I knew the fruit would be delicious, but wanted to add some other ingredients to make it a bit more unique. I settled on an almond crumb top, and decided to infuse the whipped cream with lavender. It melds the delicate flavor of winter pears, and the sweet hint of summer blueberries evoke. The very lightly sweetened lavender whipped cream, and rich, buttery nut topping all combine to create the perfect balance to the sweet fruit. This recipe is easy to make, and even easier to enjoy!
