      I tried it and it was superb!! So simple and easy yet rich and decadent. It tastes as if there was butter added and there's none! I didn't have vanilla bean so I used vanilla extract to taste. Thanks so much for sharing this gem of a recipe!!

      Elegant, easy and delicious! I bought several fresh pears from a farm stand in NY while on vacation. Having never made poached pears before, I was happy to find this recipe. After the pears were tender, I removed them to a serving bowl and reduced the cider until almost syrupy and served that over the pears. My partner and I really liked these! Thank you for sharing!
