Hi friends! It’s been awhile… I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mine was filled with lots of family, lots of food, aaand… lots of much needed relaxation…
Which was a blessing because we are now full steam ahead towards Christmas. Wowza! Only three weeks away and guess how much Christmas shopping I’ve done – zip, zilch, nada.
So it’s pretty much crunch time for me and that’s why I’m all about the easy peasy snacks and desserts for holiday parties or guests. This Cinnamon Apple & Pear Compote is just the ticket. It cooks up in no time, can be made ahead of time, and has the power to transform whatever you top with it.
Cinnamon Apple & Pear Compote; Recipe or Not
2-3 apples and/or pears, peeled and diced
1/2 c. water
juice from one lemon (2-3 T.)
3 T. brown sugar
3/4 t. ground cinnamon
sprinkle of nutmeg
The Prep: In a small saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil. Turn down the heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes or until the fruit is tender. *If making ahead of time, simply let it cool, put it in a covered container in the fridge and reheat when you need it.
Serve as a topping for ice cream, pancakes, oatmeal, plain yogurt, shortcake, get creative!
