Every year at Christmas time, we eagerly anticipate the arrival of a Harry and David box. My husband’s boss always sends us the same thing: a box filled with truffles, cherry chocolates, Chocolate Moose Crunch popcorn, and pears. It is the pears we look forward to the most. They seem like a luxury. One is even wrapped in gold foil, which makes it seem even more special.
With the pears, I always make Swedish Pear Pie, a simple yet completely irresistible dessert. Inspired by this delicious holiday treat, I came up with a recipe for Pear Crumble Ice Cream. The flavor of the ice cream is very subtle (since pears have a rather subtle flavor to begin with) and needs to be the sole dessert item on the menu. (No other ice cream flavors, or they’ll overpower the light flavor of the pear). You can make a crumble topping to dress it up and add texture and flavor.
This is the perfect dessert to follow up a heavy meal. Or a light meal. Or a meal of any kind.
Time Commitment: Medium.
Personality: Light, subtle, refined.
At the Party: This woman is almost silent, never speaking unless spoken to. Her skin is alabaster, and almost translucent. She is loveliness personified.
Health Benefits of Ingredients: (Please see the Disclaimer)
Pears are high in fiber and can reduce inflammation in the colon, prevent constipation, and flush the digestive system of toxins.
I recommend the Cuisinart ICE-21 1.5 Quart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream Maker.
