I followed this recipe exactly as written. My husband and I enjoyed it very much but we both thought it was much too sweet. I might have allowed it to reduce too much, because even after an hour the "syrup" seemed too watery, so I allowed it to continue simmering for about another half hour. Even so, next time I make this recipe I will reduce the amount of sugar to 1/4 cup or maybe even less. Also, I did sprinkle some cinnamon on one of the pears and thought the flavor was nice, but it overpowered the orange from the Cointreau too much for my taste.
I also think fresh whipped cream would go great with this recipe.
