With their muted colors and delicate, lightly floral taste, pears seem like a natural fit for elegant desserts. Having a small dinner party or special celebration? Make this Pear Cranberry Crisp.

Yes, a big ole pan of bubbly, buttery crisp is a great low-key dessert, but it can just as easily transition to more elegant affairs. Just bake the crisp in individual ramekins and serve topped with a dollop of good ice cream or crème fraîche.
