Its harvest time for our pears here at Ballyknocken! And what a lovely and juicy harvest we have had with them.

A favourite in our Cookery School and our many hen parties here is my Baked Pear Halves with a Cinnamon Coconut Crumble. I like to think of it as one of the healthier desserts but with a little bit of boldness if you like 😉 !!

A little goes a long way for this recipe and the crumble can be frozen as well.
