Lovely, simple recipe with wonderful flavours. I am making this for the second time tonight, as it is a family favourite. The sauce is VERY rich, but this can be tempered with cream. I have only tried making it with maple syrup, but I will say that my pears did go the lovely golden colour as in the picture (I did spoon the sauce over them several times during cooking though).

This was tasty and a great way of making poached pears... but the color of my pears weren't quite as lovely as Fairy Nuff's. I used honey, so perhaps if I use maple syrup next time it will have a nicer color (and not be quite so sweet). The family did love the flavor, so I will definitely try again.

This recipe makes for a great dessert and it was easy to make, but I felt like there was something missing...something that could be paired with the pears that would compliment the flavor that would make it over the top.

Absolutely fabulous! Looks and taste! I followed the recipe all the way, taking the suggestion of honey vs maple syrup. Aroma and flavor were wonderful. A special dessert, but so simple. I am going to do this again, and "fool" around with the flavors a bit, just for variety...cause it's a regular keeper.

Tish this truly is an elegant dessert-it also tastes wonderful. I love that I could make this and time it for exactly when I wanted dessert to be served. I didn't serve the pears with the cream (and icecream), just because I thought the pears looked gorgeous on the plates by themselves-I did follow the cooking part of the recipe to a T though. This is a dessert that I will happily be making again.
