Some people say it’s hard for fruit-based desserts to hit that pleasure spot in the same way a cake or pudding can, but honestly these poached pears with this syrupy brambley sauces are really heavenly — and actually very convenient for something like a dinner party. The brambles (raspberries or blackberries, as they are also known) add a richness and gentle acidity that works so well with the sweet pears. Plus, they look like little jewels on the platter so you’ll earn points for presentation, which is never a bad thing.
