Preheat the oven to 355 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Spread the sliced almonds out on a tray and toast under the griller or in the over until golden in color.
Place the pear pieces, sugar and flour into a broad oven-proof dish and mix with a wooden spoon.
Add the roasted almonds, sugar, flour, salt and cinnamon to a medium size mixing bowl. Slice the cold butter into small cubes and add the to bowl. Work the butter into the dry ingredients, using your fingertips. Keep working until the mixture is crumbly, and has the consistency of breadcrumbs. Spread half the crumble topping mix over the pears and push down firmly. Then add the other half leaving the second layer a little looser then time.
Scatter the crumble topping over the pears in two layers – pushing the first down slightly into the pears and leaving the second a bit looser.
Bake the crumble for about 35–45 minutes, until the top is golden and crisp and the filling has started to bubble.
