Make It

Step 1

Heat water and sugar in large saucepan until warm and sugar is dissolved. Add cinnamon stick, lemon and ginger; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; gently add pears.

Step 2

Simmer the pears, turning occasionally, for about 30 minutes or until tender and cooked through. When easily pierced with a knife, remove the pears from the liquid and let cool.

Step 3

Continue simmering the poaching liquid for 15 to 20 minutes or until thickened and reduced by half. Remove cinnamon stick, lemon and ginger and discard.

Step 4

While the syrup is reducing, whip the cream until stiff peaks form; fold in sweetened condensed milk.

Step 5

Place each pear in a small bowl; drizzle with syrup and top with whipped cream. Serve immediately.
