"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."

  1. Place the pears into a large saucepan. Fill with enough water to cover the pears by 1 inch. Stir in the sugar and bring to a boil. Cook uncovered until the liquid has reduced into a light syrup, this may take up to 1 hour. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Cool until just warm, then stir in the liqueur and serve.

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-...

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 ...

I opted to leave my pears whole for presentation's sake and adding only a marginal amount of orange liqueur. I replaced the rest of liqueur with lemon juice upon serving. This is very sweet, (so...
