Pears. They’re in season. Pears. It’s what to eat. Pears. They’re the pear-y-est!
It’s autumn. Yes I admit it. I cannot deny it. There’s no hiding from it. And to mourn the fact that it is no longer summer… er, um, I mean to celebrate the fact that it is now cold and there is a distinct possibility of snow, I have made a fantastic warm-me-up dessert. Poached Pear Crisp. Sweet Bosk pears, simmered in a mixture of spices and then baked on the grill with crunchy oats and brown sugar. So delicious. So… autumn.
I was inspired by a photograph on Pinterest when I contemplated this recipe. I started with research into poached pears. I would have just grabbed the common Bartlet pear for this recipe. But thanks to the author and blogger David Lebovitz, who explained in delicious detail, how to properly poach a pear for the best results I chose Bosk. Thus informed and inspired I set out to make a delicious fall dessert. Something that would warm me up and make me smile even though the weather has turned cold.
