Pear dessert

I had a few ripe pears and needed to use them up. So I peeled, cored and sliced them length wise. Put them all in a skillet with a stick of butter, a cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons cinnamon and cooked until the sauce was thickened and the pears were coated and softened. I ate it all in a bowl. but you can top vanilla ice cream with it , or maybe a cake .

That sounds so good. I hope I might get some more pears and I would try this. I cooked some until they were tender and made a cobbler with them. In fact we had it for lunch and everyone really liked it. I didn't put in cinnamon, but that probably adds a lot of flavor to them.I wish I knew someone who had pear trees and wanted to get rid of a basket or two. We had apple trees that really produced this time and gave to anyone who wanted them. I even dried some in my dehydrator.
