Make the Pears

  1. Place sugar and four cups water into a wide pot. Simmer until sugar dissolves.

  2. Puree and strain raspberries. Add to syrup in pot. Add cinnamon stick. 

  3. Peel pears (keeping stem intact) and cut thin horizontal slice off the bottom so that they can stand straight. 

  4. Place pears in pot and simmer for one hour. Turn pears over once during cooking. Chill. 

  5. Serve in a stemmed dessert dish and garnish with a chocolate leaf. Or, serve on a flat plate with pear sliced in half, and a scoop of ice cream between the halves. Top with whipped cream.
