Reviews for Cranberry Spiced Pears
"I added apples because I didn't have enough pears, delicious!"
"It is a permanent dish on my Thanksgiving menu."
"Superb! Wonderful flavors, and beautiful presentation ... looks just like the picture! Will be a repeater recipe in this home."
"My family loved this recipe and I made it twice already. We much prefer it as a light dessert and cold rather than a side dish and warm. The flavors of the spices are nicely balanced and it comes together so easily."
"I had a Christmas brunch and this was a HUGE hit. I used canned mandarin oranges in place of the naval oranges. I will definitely be making this again and again."
