When we think of fall desserts, we usually think of pies, or maybe apple crisp. We think of things with crust, or topped with frosting. Let’s expand our horizons a little: Pears poached in red wine.

It isn’t exactly a typical go-to fall dessert, but in my opinion, it should be. It’s so simple, smells SO good, and is more delicious than you could imagine. Pears, red wine, a cinnamon stick or two, a few more spices, and done. An elegant dessert you might see in a restaurant, right in your kitchen. Oh, and did I mention it’s gluten free??
