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.
