Peel pear ⅔ way down from stem, leave upper ⅓ peel to stem and trim pear bottoms so they will sit flat. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in medium saucepan over medium heat and stir to dissolve sugar. Set pears in pan so they aren't touching and bring liquid to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover pan. Simmer until pears are soft. When soft, carefully remove with slotted spoon. Also remove cinnamon stick. Reduce liquid until syrupy. Serve pears topped with syrup. Recipe By : DESSERT SHOW #DS3064
