Personal Notes:
This recipe sounds a little "iffy" with it's ingredient amounts, but you cannot do it wrong! The cream should be no more than a few tablespoons--just enough to run over the pears and mix with the sugar in the baking dish. This dish was served at a bed and breakfast I stayed at in Chattanooga, Tn. and it was breakfast dessert!
