Caramelized Spiced Pears

This delicious, fast, super easy fall treat was inspired by the Spiced Pear Yankee Candle I received as a wedding gift 12 years ago. Sadly the candle has been discontinued but luckily I’ll always be able to have these!


2 – 3 Ripe Pears

1 TBSP Brown Sugar

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Ground Cloves

1/4 tsp Ground Ginger

A dash of nutmeg

1 1/2 TBSP Butter (not margarine)


Combine brown sugar, cloves, ginger and nutmeg in a small bowl and mix.

Melt butter in skillet and toss in pears, cook on medium heat stirring constantly for about 2-3 minutes.  Add sugar and spice mixture and cook for an additional 5 mins or until pears are soft, again stirring constantly.  (Do not overcook pears they will become mushy and not taste as well.)  When done spoon spiced pears over ice cream and enjoy!
