No worry, no fuss and Oh Brother, was this Good! So simple with great results that you can just not go wrong with making this quick, healthy-ish desert. Used red Anjou pears and followed exactly, except didn’t add the toasted almonds (I was just too tired). But, next time, I will. We all loved it. Thank you, Teresa, for sharing. Made it for “Players Favorites - 5 Star Gems” tag game.

Awesome dessert, quick and easy with excellent results. The pears were perfect, tender and flavorful, we loved the caramel. I garnished with raspberry yogurt and pieces of pecan as I was out of almonds. Thanks so much for sharing this winner Teresa. made FYC tag game.

Made for the FYC Tag Game - I'm late w/this, but I wanted to use the best fresh pears I could & had to wait longer than I expected. You're so right - This is an excellent dessert. Made as written until the end. I think I used a bit more yogurt than directed & I didn't have any almonds, so I used toasted coconut as the topper. We both liked this a lot, Teresa, so thx for sharing the recipe w/us.
