    Dr. Jenny's Note:

    DH and I made these as a dessert for a dinner party where we would be served Merlot. Everyone loved them. This is from my book, "The Wine Club" by Maureen Petrosky. I am posting the recipe as it is written, however, DH and I baked our pears, having already halved them, as we could not fit them into the 8X8X2-inch baking dish whole. This worked out fine. According to the recipe, these pears will serve 12 if halved, and 24 if cut into quarters.

      Yum! I cut this recipe in half to make 6 servings and used the excess poaching liquid I had from poaching pears in Poached Cherries. This was so good and I guess I needed an excuse to gobble up some mascarpone....
