So good and easy! I made this a bit different, as another reviewer, I made the caramel sauce, then poached the pears (sliced) in the sauce. Then topped as directed. I would definitely use the almonds, as they provided great taste and texture to this very light and yummy dessert. :)

Perfect in every respect and easy too! The almonds add a nice crunch. Thanks for sharing, TeresaS.:) Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders game.

The flavor and simplicity of this is great, but baking it in the oven didn't really work for me - the sauce burned up - so I started over and sort of poached the pear in the microwave, made the sauce in the microwave and then put the whole thing together - tasted wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
