A favorite recipe during sugaring season.
These poached pears are the perfect holiday dessert - if you prefer a non-alcoholic alternative, feel free to poach them in cranberry juice instead of Port wine. You can even serve these in margarita glasses, topped with toasted almonds and fresh mint for an extra special presentation.
Apples are what most people think of when autumn arrives. Whether you are picking apples, baking apples or just crunching on apples, they are the perfect complement to the season. These miniature cakes are just great when served warm, and topped with vanilla ice cream.
