Honey Poached Pears with Cinnamon Mascarpone

Who loves a good dessert? These very simple and delicious and are a must have for your next dinner party. I made a batch the other day and they went in a flash! I had to make them once again for the upcoming Easter break.

The beautiful creamy mascarpone is a winner with a hint of cinnamon and the sweetness from the pear syrup.

If you're looking for a beautiful dessert that will make your guests wanting more... look no further!
