Last night Ryan and I enjoyed what is possibly THE perfect dessert.
Surprisingly, for those who know me, it doesn't involve massive amounts of
chocolate. It doesn't involve chocolate at all. How, then, can this possibly be the most perfect dessert? The virtues of this luscious dessert are many. It is easy and comes together quickly-- you might even have all 6 ingredients on hand. It is healthier than the average dessert, and even low-fat if you don't scrape up every last bit of the sauce (like I did last night). It has a rustic beauty worthy of company. The spices evoke cozy fall-like feelings, and the aroma fills the kitchen as you bake these delicious pears. I can't say enough about these pears. I am going to make them again tonight, and then I will post a picture. This recipe is from "Anna Rose's Pears" at Cooks.com
