    heather in Ont,'s Note:

    This is a wonderful dessert to serve after a special dinner. The Amaretto and pears are a lovely combination. DH loved this so much he had 2 servings. I didn't have 6 custard cups so I used a small glass cake pan. I found this recipe in our local newspaper but it did not list the chef who created it.

      This was delicious. I made it in the 6 ramekins and followed the recipe "as is" except I didn't peel the pears - I don't mind pear peel. I served this for the family and a guest and we all loved it. The Amaretto flavor with the pears and carmel sauce is wonderful. Great recipe for Fall when pears are in season.
