    Very good. Keep your eye on the pan so as not to burn. Doesn't take long, but you want them fresh. Next time I will peel the pears before cooking. One guest said she loved the peel, but I was not such a fan.

    I saw this recipe on the Everyday Cooking show on my local PBS station. However, they cooked it in the microwave in an 8x8 pan wrapped in paper towels. It was simple! I put the butter and sugar into the pan with the pears (put them in the pan whole). Microwave for 15 minutes and then take the pears out and mix the butter/sugar mixture with some cream and cover the pears. I may be missing out on some of the exact ingredients, but it was easy and REALLY GOOD!

    This was one of the best, simple desserts I've ever made. It's a great alternative for those who can't have wheat or dairy!

    Extremely easy and made me look like a gourmet chef. The caramel that formed on the bottom of the pan was fantastic.
