Reviews for Spiced Pear Dessert
"This recipe got a big NO from my family. The butter ran off during the cooking time, taking most of the spices with it. It must have been a HUGE pear to get enough slices to resemble the picture. I am rating it poor because the directions are incorrect and the resulting dish was a big disappointment."
"Adding a sprinkle of cloves to the pears works magic, just like adding cinnamon to apples or garlic to mushrooms.Canadiancook"
"I dressed mine up a bit by adding a dollop of Cool Whip and a few blackberries with each serving."
"I loved it. I was surprised how easy it was to cut a pear into 18 slices and have made it more than once. Ready to test it on an apple."
"Correction to my comment...1 serving of 1/2 pear should be 9 slices, thin of course."
"Looking at this recipe, i would have thought that since the recipe states that it is for 2 servings and the picture shows approx. 18 pieces of pear, then 1 serving from 1 pear should be approx. 9 slices."
"I'm not sure where anyone gets the idea there should be 30 pcs. I pear would not cut into 30 pcs unless they were paper thin. One serving would be half a pear.Gilda"
"Perhaps the picture is of only ONE serving..the recipe says it makes 2 servings...so if u see 18 on one plate, the remaining 12 must be on the other plate!?"
"Anita: I have looked at the photo of this dish, and I can not see 30 slices of pear on the plate. I did count 18. I have not tried this dish, but I'm looking forward to it. "
"Agree with Anita......has to be more than ONE pear!!!"
"I have done this in the oven to crystallize the brown sugar, and omitted the butter (to make it less calories). It is a great way to serve pears that are very firm."
"It sounds wonderful, but I am not convinced that the picture is truly one serving. Even a very large pear would not have 30 slices!"
