How it's done

Chai pears

Bring the water, sugar, vanilla and lemon zest to the boil in a large pan while stirring. Add the tea bags, leave to steep for approx. 5 mins., remove. Add the pears, cover and simmer for approx. 15 mins. until soft. Carefully remove the pears, drain.

Cobbler mixture

Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Add the butter and rub together using your hands to form an even, crumbly mixture. Add the buttermilk, mix quickly to form a soft dough – do not knead. Arrange the pears in the prepared dish. Place the cobbler mixture next to the pears in the dish, top with the hazelnuts.
