Autumn Pear Dessert

Autumn Pear Dessert

"After a filling meal, this elegant little dessert hits the spot...and it's a snap to fix! Patricia Olson from Germantown, Maryland serves a warm pear with a few simple ingredients. 'For a lighter dessert, substitute vanilla yogurt for the whipped topping,' she suggests."

This is the fastest dessert I've ever made, and one of the best tasting! To save even more time, I used canned pears and just followed the recipie as directed, skipping the prep time for the pea...

This is such a snap to prepare and was so tasty! I made the lower-fat version by using vanilla yogurt instead of whipped topping, and it was just perfect. Completely satisfied my after-dinner ...

I really enjoyed this! Had brought home pears too firm to eat so thought I'd try it. I wrapped in wax paper first & put on the plate. It was a large pear so had to cook longer about 3 min. 45...

Excellent, quick dessert! Will add to the file for "company desserts".
