Are you a pear fan? My daughter and I love pears! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! They are a fall favorite in my household and come in second to apple consumption.

I love poaching them for our dessert. This is a quick and easy dessert that is great for a Tuesday night or a Saturday night dinner party with friends. It can be prepared the day before and warmed up or served cold. I loved the syrup that is created with the pears and the spices. I think that is my favorite part!
