We had Cuban Picadillo for dinner and I had some lime juice left over. I had three red pears and I thought that the juice, with some rum, would make a nice Cuban twist on roasted pears. Red pears are a variety of d’Anjou pears.
We were planning to have Uncle Tom’s apricot pie for Christmas Eve dinner, but I forgot to defrost it. At the last minute I threw together this desert. I had a few pears and some leftover store-bought pear-caramel sauce from a previous dinner. Pears, butter, a bit of spice and whiskey and voilà.
