    Lene's Note:

    I like to make these with Jamaican coffee, but your favourite filter coffee would do nicely.

      Made this with Vanilla rum and served over vanilla ice cream. Simply wonderful.

      I'm not quite sure how to rate this, as five stars doesn't seem to be enough! Let me just say that I just observed the DH doing something he NEVER does... Caught him standing by the stove, spooning up the left over sauce and groaning "this is soooo gooooood"! Followed the instructions exactly, except had to use dark sugar cones (dulce de tapa or piloncillo) because brown sugar isn't available here. Thank you so much for posting! PS: it looks much better in person - as the pears were not terribly photogenic. Or maybe it was just my photography skills, LOL!
