Hazelnut pear crumble

I had lots of pears left from my New Year's Eve buffet and I finally wanted to use them up. I had in mind to use them for a nice warm sweet-fruity dessert and because we love apple crumble, I tried this variation with baked pears and hazelnut crumbles. The use of brown sugar instead of the white one gives this dish an extra caramelly flavor.
It wouldn't win a beauty contest, that's for sure, but really...who cares! :D

And the best thing: it's super easy and done in no time!
