    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Vegetarian Times, this simple and elegant dessert is a snap to throw together. Begin with the best ingredients and you'll end with a delicious dessert. Sometimes pumpkin pie is too heavy for the Thanksgiving meal and this recipe fits the bill perfectly. Experiment with another flavor of jam if you choose.

      This is a 10 star dessert, CG. Amazing blend of flavors work their magic on the pears. Definitely guest-worthy!!! Just a note to others: if your pears are very ripe, as mine were, don't bake as long) Made for CookGirl as being the first to post a photo in Photo Swap-Cooking Photos Forum. BUT I got the best reward--this wonderful recipe!
