      Fantastic! I've only had poached pears once before, but this recipe has now made them one of my all time favorites. The kitchen smelled so good while these were cooking and the taste was wonderful. Thanks for a great keeper, Leslie. Made for ZWT8 - Australia.

      We made this last night for my friend's birthday dessert. It was really good. Since one of my friends is gluten-free, desserts can be kind of tricky. This was elegant and hit the spot and was really good with vanilla bean ice cream. Thanks!

      So delicious! I just wish I hadn't waited so long to try this recipe. The only change I made was to use ground all spice instead of whole. I served them chilled over vanilla bean ice cream. We can't wait to have these again. Thanks for this delicious recipe.
