Now top with PREMIUM vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt. Yojr spent time making a top notch dessert. Do not cheapen it with less than stellar ice cream.

Apple/pear mixture can be used for a pie or served alone in a bowl topped with ice cream. If there is somehow anything left eat for breakfast with pancakes the following morning
