Honey-Poached Pears With Brown Sugar Cream (#7)

35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
12 ingredients
4 servings
From my long-lost treasure trove of recipes recently found, but orig found on the net at a source I cannot now recall. Poached pears have long been a favorite dessert choice for me, esp for a dinner party when I want an elegant dessert as the finale of a hearty meal. Many others feel the same & there are many choices here on RZ, but this one is new to me & appealing w/the use of the optional brandy. (Time does not include time for syrup to cool & refrigeration of pears overnight) Enjoy!
