Drunken Pears Stuffed with Cookie Crumble - by Summer
I purposely saved some homemade gingersnaps for this recipe. I've never had baked pears, but my husband had, so I was interested to see how this would turn out. I didn't have any red wine on hand - I really need to keep a bottle of white and a bottle of red handy at all times! I finally picked up a bottle and I had everything else for this recipe.
It was really easy, although the wine and sugar never really thickened to a syrup . . . Not sure if I did something wrong or should have let it baked longer.
I liked the taste of the filling - gingersnaps, walnuts, butter and honey. I had a little bit of whipped cream with the first half, but the second half I just ate plain. I liked this dessert - very warm and comforting - perfect for a cold winter night. Unfortunately my pictures didn't turn out very well, so I really just have one.
