    I use this as a topping for pancakes or waffles, or over vanilla ice cream. YUM!

    Delicious and sweet ending to a meal. I used walnuts instead of pecans. Thank you, Carol, for sharing this recipe.

    This is always a crowd pleaser at my house. I always have these ingredients on hand. It is so quick and easy to whip up this simple dessert when we are in the mood. I also like using pears instead of apples!

    Very tasty. I didn't toast the pecans, but I did add a little cinnamon.
