This dessert is a sophisticated alternative to the usual cake or pie. Poaching the pears the day before serving and letting them marinate in the juice over night will make this dessert even tastier. The fun part for me was getting creative about the presentation and impressing my mother in-law, but the best part is savouring it of course!

    DO NOT USE BOSC PEARS

    Ms. Blaschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    OKAY - I really wanted to try this recipe and my store DID NOT have BARTLETT pears. They had ANJOU and BOSC. I figured that I would try the BOSC pears. They looked about the same size and shape - different color and way different texture as I found out. The cranberry cocktail , cranberry sauce and semi sweet morsels were really tasty with the pear - only the BOSC pears were mushy and looked pretty odd - not at all like your photograph. I cannot wait to try it again with BARTLETT pears as you used in the recipe. The taste was really good - the appearance was a FLOP to say the least.
