Ever wonder which types of pears make the best ones for dessert recipes?
It's easy. Simply choose the kind of pear that you most enjoy eating raw!
For this simple fall dessert, we used red Anjou pears but Bartlett and Bosc make great dessert pears as well.
After peeling, coring, and halving pears, rub all sides with the lemon half. Set aside.
Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add brown sugar and allspice and stir until dissolved. Reduce heat to a simmer and add apple juice. Place pears in skillet, flat edges down. Cook for 15 minutes and then turn over and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until pears pierce easily with a fork. A golden caramel sauce will form as the pears cook.
Meanwhile, make white chocolate sauce recipe. Keep warm.
After cooking pears, remove from pan and place pears on a cutting board.
Add rum to skillet, and stir it into the caramel sauce. Let simmer for an additional minute. Remove from heat.
Meanwhile, cut each pear half into 3 slices. Return pears to skillet and coat gently with sauce.
Assemble crepes: Lay first crepe flat on a plate. Ladle six pieces of pear over crepe and 2 tbsp of pear-caramel sauce. Roll up crepe. Top with one scoop of ice cream and drizzle with 1-2 tbsp of white chocolate sauce. Finish with a sprinkle of walnuts. Repeat with remaining crepes and serve immediately.
Yield: 4 servings (1 crepe roll each)
