    OMG I remember when we had these. They were amazing. I have got to make these for Dave. He would love them. This is a perfect Valentine’s dessert.

    • I so agree. These pears are just amazing. I make them often for a reason.

  • Margaretduarte

    Looks great.  But you’re right.  The recipe takes a long time.  Think I’ll just go to your house next time you make it.  Yum!

      And you can count yourself invited. The results will make you a convert. 🙂

    Oh Wow! these look amazingly delish!

    • They are really, really good. Let me know how it goes when you try the recipe. 🙂

  • Lbenton

    Wow, these sound amazing. I am definately going to make these. Thanks for sharing

    • They really are. I use a good quality medium price wine to make these delights. When you make them come back and let me know how it went.

  • Jacqueline Gum

    I’ve only had these in restaurants and they are a favorite of mine. Now that I see the whole thing printed…not so hard, right?

    • They are pretty easy Jacqueline. What I love is how pretty they look and you can’t beat the taste. Do you think you might give these a try?

      • Jacqueline Gum

        If I ever give a dinner party again…LOL…I’d definitely give these a try as dessert. I copied the recipe and put it in my recipe file 🙂

        • They are great for that. They’re an easy wow factor recipe. 🙂

  • This is great because I love baked pears, but hard to control – this would be much easier. Their nice with cinnamon in too and maple syrup instead of honey as well. Look great bright red!

    • Thanks A.K. I do love the color. it is truly that red. I agree, cinnamon and maple syrup would work, but it would change the taste profile. Do you think you might try these pears that way?

  • Catarina Alexon

    Sounds like a divine way of baking pears, Susan. And not too difficult either:-) Can it get better?

    • They are that Catarina. :-). I think the only thing I would change is to add and bit of chocolate on the side… LOL. What about you?

  • Haley Gray

    These look AMAZING. Wow. I love the idea of the baked pears in red wine. How does the recipe work with white wine? Or apples? So many variations, so little time!

    • Hi Haley, Pears are uniquely suited for cooking in red wine. I have never tried white wine but it would a fun project. Apples are better baked because of their texture. They simple don’t hold up, falling apart and then become mush. I hope this answers your questions. :-). I agree, there are just too many good thing to try. 🙂

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    These definitely look worth a try. The only fruit desert my husband has ever made at home are grilled peaches with ice cream.

    • Oh, then you must give these a try Jeri. Grilled peaches are great but these pears are incredible. Question; do you like baked apples?

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    Totally thought the pears were dipped in chocolate at first glance. Boy was I wrong.

    • Hi Krystle, Nope that not chocolate.. LOL. But the sauce is to die for. So, what is your favorite fruit dessert?

  • Cheryl Therrien

    Does the alcohol cook off? Otherwise sounds yummy. 🙂

    • Hi Cheryl, Yes, absolutely, 4 to 5 hours in the oven insures that. I know you’d love these. Do you think you might give them a try?

  • Thank you. This recipe sounds wonderful. I love anything with cooked pears.

    • It is one of my favorites Michele. I will often make them a few days ahead when we are having visitors. Enjoy. 🙂

  • MinaJoshi5409

    You have taken the pear to an exquisite level. I thought the pears would go mushy after being in the oven for so long but your look great with a rich colour. I will give this recipe a try.

    • Hi Mina, Pears by their makeup are uniquely suited to this kind of cooking. They never fail to come out that way and I so love their taste. Please do share your experiment when you try this recipe. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    Mmmm…I’m having some friends over for dinner in a couple of weeks and this looks so good I’ll have to try it out. (BTW the post was unusually slow to load, the main picture seems to be at the heart of the slower speed.)

    • I LOVE this recipe, Debra. If you try it, you must let mw know what you think and if your guests enjoyed it. 🙂

      • Debra Yearwood

        I served this amazing dish to two couples who joined us for dinner tonight…WOW, WOW, WOW. They were so complimentary and so blown away by what they described as both familiar and unique flavours. One guest commented that if she had known what dinner at our place was like, she would have wanted an invite sooner. My husband can’t believe it, he said it was exactly what he expected only waaaaaay better because of all of the unanticipated notes and subtleties of flavour. 🙂 Thanks Susan.

        • WOOT! WOOT! That is so cool!!!! I am so happy you enjoyed this recipe Debra. It is one of our very favorites and one my friends< that have had it, will ask for often. Happy Dance, Happy Dance. 🙂
