The ease of preparation and elegant simplicity make this dessert spectacular. That little bit of sugar and cream bakes into a lovely light caramel sauce which is just delectable when spooned over the baked pears. This is divine, and I would definitely serve this as a finish to an elegant dinner (heck, any dinner, even beans and franks!).


Do not cover after adding the cream or you will have a curdled pudding. And if you are using a different type of pear, add at least another 1/2 hour to baking depending on ripeness. Stay the course until the pears are tender...they release their full sugar potential. Truly amazing and simple recipe.

Simply divine! I used plain old green pears, peeled off the skin and followed the instructions. It took much longer in the oven, probably because of the type of pear. Covered for half an hour and then uncovered and baked another 15 minutes. It looks so elegant too!
