I have not made this but thought it looked interesting (for those of us that like pears that is). It is from our local TV guide from a column called the Chopping Block by Philomena Corradeno

This makes a wonderful cobbler type dessert. I made it exactly as posted, using sliced almonds. This is definitely going into my "quick and easy" file. Thanks Bergy!
I wasn't sure what to expect of the finished dessert but chose to make this recipe to use up canned pears which DH claims he hates. Well let me tell you DH now likes his canned pears(lol). The finished dessert is sort of like a cobbler, warm and gooey. When I drained the pairs I only had 1/2 cup of the syrup, so I made up the difference with just plain water and it worked without a problem. I also used Smart Balance light instead of butter without a problem. Made this before starting my dinner, and by the time I cooked & we ate, it had cooled off just enough to serve nice and warm. Thank you Bergy for sharing the recipe. Its another winner.
This recipe is fast, easy and VERY delicious. I have lots of pears on hand so I made this with fresh pears by peeling and coring 3-4 pears and placing them in a baking tin. Sprinkle with 1/2- 1 tsp. ginger and pour 3/4- 1 cup white grape juice concentrate over them. Bake at 375° for 20-45 min. depending on size and hardness of pears. After cooling, start Bergy's recipe. I used a 9" round metal baking tin and the timing was right on.
