This is a simple yet elegant dessert. Pears are poached in a caramel sauce made with butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg. The pears are then baked on puff pastry until golden and delicious! Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and enjoy.
The pears with the sauce tasted wonderful, but the crust turned out heavy and soggy. If I make it again, I will just use the pears in the sauce simmered on the stove. Or? Could it be made as a tart instead with the crust pre-baked a bit so the juice doesn't make it soggy and put the simmered pears and sauce on top to finish baking? - 20 Oct 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very tasty. There was too much juice, most of which I could remove. But the puff pastry crust was tough. If I try it again, I will poach the pears and serve over separately baked puff pastry. - 07 Jan 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
