  1. Delightful and quick. This is good enough to serve to guests.
  2. Made your recipe as given except that I included four pear halves instead of just the two, which made a nice serving for each of us! An easy-to-make, delicious dessert, & one I'll be making again! [Made & reviewed just for the halibut!]
  3. I made this with a 410gram can of pears in fruit juice (did not discard juice after soaking in vanilla - used in a smoothie) and a squirt of cream with Debbwl's recipe #394198 (though with diabetics in mind only a couple of tablespoons full) and it was delicious. Thank you Debbwl, made for Make My Recipe - Edition 11.
  4. This is so quick and easy to prepare, and looks so impressive as well. I used your Recipe#394198 for this hot fudge which made this dessert absolutely divine. DS was in heaven ~ fruit and chocolate ....... His ultimate dream! lol Lucky I doubled the recipe and made more Recipe#394198 because he came back for a second helping. I think Apricots would be awesome in this recipe as well. Deb this is one fantastic recipe, and for those who have picky non fruit eaters.... then this may be the recipe to try on them!
  5. This is so far up my alley I might just barricade myself there. Even THE PICKY ONE who claims to not like fruit asked for 2nds. SOOOO easy and sooo delicious!! Canned pears were just on sale; I wish I had bought much more. Made for the 1/10 Veggie Swap. Thank you!!
