Simple, easy, and crowd pleasing. Everyone enjoyed the origanal take on a classic, and I can't wait to experiment.

Fantastic!!! I had some borderline overripe pears and needed a way to use them. I found this recipe and gave it a try. I'm SO glad I did!!! I'll for sure be making these again!

add cinnamon and allspice and it is yummy!

I'd say this is 10 stars, I made these for dessert and dusted them with powdered sugar, my whole family loved them, even my husband who doesn't like sweets!
