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 .
