Excellent, easy dessert. I added about 1/2 cup each chopped walnuts and dried cherries to the stuffing. Yum!

We loved this recipe! The topping tasted a little like a British flapjack to me (I love flapjack!). The flavours of the pears and the topping blended together so beautifully we'll definitely make this often. With low fat butter and Splenda brown sugar, this recipe has 5 Weight Watchers points per serving/ whole pear. Made for ZWT6.

VERY Yummy!! Even DH who doesn't care for pears said by the time he was finished with his serving thought they were delicious. I had 6 pears that needed to get used up quick so I halved and cored them. Buttered my baking dish and set them inside flesh side up. I increased the oats and brown sugar to 1 Cup, left the butter and nutmeg as written and added a heaping tablespoon of cinnamon. I had some leftover juice boxes from company a while back and used 1 Apple and Eve Apple Juice box. It was just shy of 1 cup but I think the amount was perfect. The only thing I would do differently next time is reduce the butter, maybe by half since I used butter to grease the dish. Overall, a very successful dessert and beautiful presentation!

Delicious dessert! I cut the butter in half, next time I would decrease the amount of juice too. Drizzled a little maple syrup over these and served with low fat vanilla ice cream - definitely company worthy!

these are so delicious!! only thing i did different was to heap a bunch of the mixture on the top of the pears. that resulted in a lovely crispy crust on top. i'll be making these all winter! thanks so much!

What a treat this was for us on a rainy stormy day here along the coast! I tweaked it a bit by using 1/4 c. orange juice and filling the cup with water to make 1 c. liquid. I added half of the liquid mixture at the beginning and 3/4's through the baking time, I added only 1/4 c. What I did totally different was to drizzle 1/4 c. of heavy cream over the pears for the last ten baking minutes...yummy! Thanks for a keeper!

WOWEE! This is soooooooooo good! I rarely have fresh pears but did buy 4 bartletts and let them get nice and ripe. I made it as directed using rolled oats and only 4T of Splenda brown sugar blend. I only needed to use the first 3/4 cup of apple juice and the pan was full of juice at the end. This was very sweet but I reallllllllly enjoyed it hot with Cool Whip Lite. Thanks for this AMAZING KEEPER recipe! Made for the Beverage tag game.
