Last week I made Poached Pears with Rosemary and Bourbon from pears that were sent to me from Stemilt Growers. If you haven’t tried them, you should! They are the best pears I’ve ever had. I used up the last few juicy pears to make this Whole Pear Crisp.
I love Apple Crisp but it’s a very rustic dish. I wanted something that’s slightly more refined but with all the cinnamon flavor. I used pear halves to create individual servings. Using whole pears means less chopping and less time preparing the dish, which is always a good thing. It’s great for a small gathering during the holidays. Serve each pear half with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream and you’ve got an easy but delicious holiday dessert.
