Maple Pears with pecans and cranberries

You know the way you buy some pears and it takes all week for them to ripen? Yes, well I bought these pears last week and they were perfect today. So I had a quick search on the internet for a suitable dessert recipe and found this.

I served the pears with Light Greek Style Yogurt with a little vanilla extract mixed through it. I have to say it was very nice :)

I have to be honest and admit that pears are not quite my thing but your photo has still managed to make my mouth water!

I had the juciest pears ever over the summer which would be delicious with pecans and cranberries.

I'm going to quit telling you how I read your blog with an accent, but I still do. The pears look lovely darling ~ did that sound good?? Chip chip cheerio! I know, I need to get some rest don't I?? I'm having blog withdrawal not being able to post anything - GRRRRR. I think they said the girl that designed the blogs will be home tonight so fingers crossed!

Janice this was a great idea. There are few things more perfect than a ripe pear. I stopped by just to say hello snd ended staying longer than I planned. I'll be back often. Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

What a great way to use pears. I love making fruit desserts and need to do it more often.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I really appreciate the visit.

I love the sound of these with pecans and cranberries! I bet they were just delicious with the yogurt too.
