Baked pears for a tasty Thanksgiving dessert

You know I love fruit, and a lovely baked pear is one of my favorite desserts in the fall.  This recipe is for 6 pear lovers and it takes 2-3 hours.  It's well-worth the wait.  Besides, while its baking in the oven, you can prepare the rest of the meal, or watch TV.  But if you are in a real hurry, try out my other Baked Pear Recipe which only takes a few minutes in the microwave.

This is a great recipe for your Thanksgiving dessert buffet.  Click to find more fall desserts.

Next Thursday is Thanksgiving so there will be no Vintage Recipe Thursday.  I send an early wish for all of you to enjoy a fantastic Thanksgiving.
