This recipe calls for canned pears, however I am sure it could easily be used to get rid of the surplus of fresh pears you might have this time of year.

Great recipe, especially if you are short on time or don't like to bake. I used pecans, placing one whole pecan on the top. I served it after a holiday meal. Rave reviews by all.
