Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has become one of my favorite dessert recipes. This has become one of my favorite dessert recipes. It is easy enough to make for myself, but pretty enough to make for company. Since I am on a weight loss program, using sugar free jello makes a delicious, yet healthy dessert. Sometimes I make more than one flavor of jello and layer the leftovers in a bowl and serve the multiple colors of pears on a platter, which is very pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this for friends and family several times and everyone was impressed. I've made this for friends and family several times and everyone was impressed. They are amazed that the center is still white while the outside is red. It's a bit difficult to eat, but the presentation more than makes up for it. I served these with Godiva white chocolate mousse ice cream for a truly deccadent dessert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very delicious. Very delicious. I and two of my family members are gastric bypass patients and we doubled the recipe and made it with sugar free jello. We then used the remaining liquid to make a kind of cider by adding a 2-liter bottle of 7-up plus and a 1/4 teaspoon cloves (ground). Great warm or cold and sugar free!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quick and easy dessert. Very quick and easy dessert. We made it with sugar free jello and it was perfect. We served it with a little cool whip and cinnimon. We did need to cook them a little longer than the recipe stated but other than that, it worked great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved this recipe! Loved this recipe!! I couldn't figure out why my pears weren't as red, but then realized after the fact, that the pears were supposed to be peeled. They tasted great anyway!! The Cool Whip was a great added taste to it.
