Cheers to Pears!

I made these a few years ago, then totally forgot about them! They've been hanging from my curtain rod for ages now, and when I re-arranged my curtain ornaments (wind chimes, keyring garland etc) the other day, I rediscovered them!Here's a pear recipe to go along with them! It's easy, scrummy, and healthy! Have fun making it alone or get the kids to help, Eat it hot with ice cream or cold from the fridge! Yummy!

  • 1/4 cup margarine, cut in 1/2" dice
  • 1/3 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
