    From USA Weekly. This is elegant enough to serve for company, but also perfect for an end to a comfortable family meal. Instead of the sour cream, you could use Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream to serve.

      This was a delicious treat! I had some pears I needed to use up and surfed Zaar for a recipe when I came across yours. Very rich and tasty! I used Creme Fraiche and chopped walnuts as garnish, everybody loved it.

      I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Wow, was this OVER THE TOP! An amazingly easy dessert, yet so impressive when served. We gobbled up the whole thing before I could snap a picture. One thing -- it is so rich, I think that 4 pears ought to be 8 servings, or 1/2 pear each. That's what we did, and it was more than enough. Thanks, hannahactually, for an AMAZING dessert!

      This is very easy and very good, and makes a huge amount of very sweet caramel sauce. My only suggestion would be to add a bit of salt to the sauce to temper the sweetness a little bit.
