      I do love the smell & taste of gingerbread, & when combined in your recipe with the pears, it's absolutely wonderful, & although I have it added to my holiday cookbook, I plan on making this several times throughout the year! A definite keeper of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC recipe tag]
