I loved everything here except the cranberries, which I thought were a tad too tart. I would add some extra sugar, or perhaps cinnamon/nutmeg to offset the tartness a tad.
OK, good recipe. I served it for Christmas Eve dinner with my ham. Cooked well at lower temps so that went OK. Since the recipe didn't specify, I peeled the pears and it worked out well. The comments from the family were, very good, tastes like wine, needs more ice cream...but all in all, was pretty good and very pretty/light for the dinner. If I were to change anything, maybe a little more thickness to the syrup (but not with sugar). A family member suggested nuts and I agree, might be good with some pecans or a few walnuts. How about some seasoning, like cinnamon or allspice?
