We are so happy to find this recipe. It is my daughter's favorite and when she lost her copy she was so disappointed. Thanks, Tarynne!!

These were delightful! I used fresh peeled pears. I plan to make this again this week, but I'm going to skip the cinnamon and use some lemon extract in the custard mixture...mmm
