Prep Time : 30 minutes / Yields: 5-6 servings

Step 1

Place all of the ingredients in a medium size sauce pan. Bring the liquid to a quick boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the pears are soft but not mushy. 

Step 2

Remove the pears and place them in a heat proof dish, then return the pan and the juices to high heat and reduce the simmering liquid down until it is thickened. This should take 20 minutes

Step 3

Serve the pears at room temperature with lightly whipped cream, the thickened syrup from the juices, and a sprinkle of toasted chopped nuts (optional).
