Baked Pears with Streusel Filling

    This is a very elegant dessert. I liked the topping OK, but it was gooey-er than I expected. Probably due to the honey. I couldn't find any apple brandy at the liquor store, so I just used apple juice. The pears came out a little bland. Next time, I'll try it with plain brandy if I can't find any apple brandy. I may also try it without the honey, to see if we like the texture of the topping a little better that way.

    Tried this on my family a few years ago after dinner and they loved it. A little too sweet so we cut the brown sugar in half and it was perfect. Kids thought it tasted like apple streudel. The brandy we used is called Applejack.
