"Delishes! Cut the pears (4) in half before baking. Used craisins and orange. Baked for 60 minutes. Let cool as we ate dinner. Served with Butter Pecan ice cream on top."

"This was a nice treat for those of us on a diet. I made ours with blueberries and cherries! I also cut them in half before baking ."

"The pears did take an exceptionally long time to bake, I'm not sure they were ripe enough, but the taste was good. They were liked by all."

"It cooks a lot faster if you cut and core the pears first. I found that I needed only half the sweetener, and I covered the pan loosely with foil to keep the cut side of the pears from drying out. Made 3 times to get it just right. Use a large serving spoon to scoop up the pears, place in dessert bowls, top with the hot fruits. My son put Vanilla icecream in his pear first, my daughter tried yogurt and walnuts! Yum!"
