      Ive never poached pears before and this was very simple and easy to follow recipe. It made one of the best puddings I think Ive ever tasted. If you want something light and not too sweet this is the one for you. I also poached the pears a little longer and they go a beautiful golden colour. I didnt use the biscotti but served it with some local vanilla ice cream, absolutely fabulous!

      What a wonderful dessert this made! The sauce had a fruity and tangy taste, and as I couldn't find any biscotti, I used Stella D'Oro almond toast instead. It soaked up the wonderful sauce and added a nice crunchy touch to the dessert. The only thing I would do differently is to poach the pears a little longer -- I used Bosc pears, and they were still a little firm even after poaching for 20 minutes, so next time I will cook them a little longer. This was an elegant ending for our meal -- we enjoyed it so much!
