Could not get bosc pears so used a French Silk pears which worked out perfectly and were so cream and silky that each bite was a sheer delight. The pumpkin pie spice and slivered almonds offered a wonderful contrast to the sweet silky French Silk pears. Thanks so much for the post.
Wonderful, and so easy. The pumpkin pie spice adds a lovely flavor, and it smells so good while cooking. Thanks for sharing! PAC Spring '12
