This dessert is versatile - you can serve it warm or cold and for any size group. Chilled pears can be dressed up with a dollop of whipped topping, fruit-filled yogurt or ice cream. -Betty Schledorn, Ocala, Florida

"I really like how easy it was to prepare this dessert. I did not have any orange marmalade so I substituted apple butter. I also omitted the cinnamon and sugar since the apple butter has it. I only used enough butter and apple butter to fit in the hole where I removed the seeds. Still really sweet but I would make again."

"These came out tasting great, but mine were not lovely like the ones in the picture. The melting butter largely washed the topping off the pears. I might make it again, but with much less butter and marmalade.

I could see serving it over waffles. It really wasn't the pretty dessert I had in mind."
