Welcome to Sweet Saturday at Charlene Blogs. With my tree overloaded with pears, I've been looking for new ways to serve them up. I think I found a winner here. This week I'm sharing a caramely sweet dessert that's super easy to make and just as easy to cuddle up next to your love with and share (if you can bring yourself to actually share it). *wink* I got this recipe from TasteOfHome.com. Thank you Taste of Home for allowing us to share them. :)
Diane Halferty of Corpus Christi, Texas says, "This is a lovely winter dessert that uses pears that are seasonally available. I enjoy snacking on it in front of the fireplace." And I'll add the cuddling and sharing part just cause I'm a romantic. *smile*
