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.
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.
