The frst time I made this, I misread the recipe and purchased the small cans of pears. I supplimented the pears with frozen cranberries. I also omitted the nuts. It was so good that I will always make it that way! The combination of the fruit and the creamy custard topping was delicious!
Next to eating it fresh, the best way to enjoy summer fruit is with a tender biscuit topping and scoop of ice cream.
