Is there anything more satisfying than a perfectly ripe pear? It’s almost something of a feat, given how quickly they go soft. I think there’s an Eddie Izzard bit about how pears are only ripe for about 30 seconds when you have your back turned. But don’t worry, this can be made with under- or over-ripe pears just fine. It may or may not have originated as a way for me to soften up a pear I bit into before it was ready. With just three ingredients, these Cinnamon-Ginger Pears come together easily, offering a simple, comforting flavor that’s perfect for fall and winter treats. Of course, this dish can also be made with apples in a pinch. (I prefer sweet red ones like Gala, but green apples work, too.) Serve them in a pie, on ice cream, or just straight outta the pan for a dessert that’s sure to warm you up!
