    DogAndCatDoc's Note:

    This recipe calls for canned pears, however I am sure it could easily be used to get rid of the surplus of fresh pears you might have this time of year.

      Great recipe, especially if you are short on time or don't like to bake. I used pecans, placing one whole pecan on the top. I served it after a holiday meal. Rave reviews by all.

      I used a fresh pear that I didn't think would be juicy enough on it's own. I tossed it with some apple juice, melted butter and flour before putting in a ramekin and topping with the gingersnaps and walnuts. Just one ramekin for us to share. It was delish with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
