    When I served this dessert after dinner, my guests and husband oohed and aahed!

I did not tell them how easy it was and how much fun I had making the pear dessert. The dessert looked and tasted like a 'gourmet' dish. Beautiful presentation. Thank you for this wonderful dessert. An A++++ recipe that I've already added to my 'collection' of gourmet desserts!

    Delicious with lots of potential

    Avishan from

    Delicious, simple, and easy! I altered the recipe: put in half the amount sugar, used 50% fat content cream cheese, and bitter chocolate. I also used a Pomegrande merlot syrup in stead of Raspberry syrup and added some fresh pomegranade seeds for decoration. The great think about this recipe is that people think you have spent a lot of time preparing it.

    This recipe can be upgraded to excellent. I poached fresh pears (no trouble matching halves) and then followed recipe. Finally ending with a garnish of a purchased gold foil leaf at the stem end of the pear and a few fresh raspberries scattered on the sauce. PERFECT!
