So here's a little autumnal pear-themed video recipe for you all...
Of course, it's no big surprise that pouring salted bourbon caramel into pear halves and topping them with buttery crispy oats and brown sugar turns into something pretty special. Indeed, this little dessert is fun to make, and even funner to eat.
Step 1: Find some ripe, preferably organically-grown pears that have a soft flesh such as Bartletts.
Step 2: Cut the pears in half and remove the seeds, ends, and stems, leaving a nice little hollow to catch all that caramel.
Step 3: Make your caramel and be generous with the bourbon! (PS: in the absence of bourbon, plain old whiskey works just fine, sorry for bourbon connoisseurs out there, but it's true!)
Step 4: Make the crisp topping.

PS: This works just as well with apples :-)
