This recipe is perfect for an uncommon dessert that's fresh and fast. These sweet caramel pears overs ice cream are easy, special and delicious. For a different flavor, substitute canned peaches.—Len Harkness, Pacifica, California

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 can (29 ounces) pear halves
