1/2 Photos of Luscious Pears in Raspberry Sauce
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.
