"Bosc Pears make their own light syrup right on the stove top. Add a touch of vanilla and orange liqueur, and you have an autumn dessert that won't weigh you down."

Bosc pears, halved and cored
Cointreau or other orange liqueur
OH MY GOSH!!!!
I had 2 fresh pears I needed to use and found this recipe. Just what I was looking for. In fact, I made it again 2 days later with slices of fresh pears , honeycrisp apples and a small amt. of ground nutmeg added. Great with or without the orange flavoring.
Was unsure, so I left the skin on and that seemed to work nicely. The syrup was very watery even after 90 minutes over medium heat. Tasted fine, but reminiscent of canned pears. Not sure I would do it again.
Very tasty, everyone enjoyed it. I did not change anything - followed the recipe exactly. Next time, I think that I'll slice the pears instead of simmering halves. Thanks for the recipe!
This was incredible! I was amazed at how wonderful the pear syrup tasted after one hour of cooking. I added the vanilla as instructed, but I didn't have Cointreau, only Triple Sec, which seems a bit harsher, so I only added 1 tablespoon. Next time (and there will be a next time) I don't think I'll add the liqueur at all. My husband and I enjoyed these pears very much. Thanks for the recipe!
I don't like pears and was looking for a recipe to use up some we had on hand. Both my husband and I liked this recipe. I substituted 1/4 cup orange juice and 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar for the Cointreau, and it turned out very good.
It was so good I'm making it again in the morning (dicing the pears over waffles) Amazing. We had to sub with orange juice. Sprinkle with cinnamon...it's all that's missing!
These were the perfect ending to our meal tonight! The recipe was just right.
To top them, I whipped some cream.
We don't have any liquer in our house at all, so I did what another reviewer did-left it out. Thanks for the good recipe.
This was delicious. I did not have orange liqueur but peach. I added it and it gave the pears a fresh, but not peachy taste. My only complaint is that my dish looked more like cooked potatoes than pears. Next time I would add some red food coloring.
