Cinnamon Apple & Pear Compote

I SCREAM!!!!!!

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.
