    bert's Note:

    This was the million dollar winner a couple of years ago in the Pillsbury Bake-Off in Dallas, Texas. It has a wonderful rich taste. (This was the 1st time a man had won the bake-off.)

      My friend brought this torte to my house as part of a dinner party. I made dinner and she made this to-die-for dessert. She (evilly) left the rest of it in my place - I have been eating a piece every night for dessert. I heat it for 20 seconds in the microwave and spoon vanilla ice cream over it. My new favorite torte!!!! You have to try it.

      This torte is sooooo AMAZING. I had a few friends over for dinner so I decided to try and impress them with this recipe and I had them ALL licking their plates clean. I don't know why more people haven't tried this wonderful dessert. I have full intention on distributing this recipe to every girl I know!! I didn't change a thing, and my torte came out PERFECT. The pears really give a nice subtle, different touch. I insist that EVERYONE on zaar try this one!
