Expert Tips

*To toast almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

Serve with whipped topping or a scoop of your favorite ice cream.

Because this recipe calls for a ripe pear, it requires a bit of planning. Store-bought pears may take up to 1 week to ripen.
