  • Heat oven to 300°F.
  • Beat egg whites in large bowl with mixer on high speed until foamy. Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating constantly until stiff peaks form. Blend in vanilla. Stir in nuts.
  • Spoon or pipe egg white mixture into 3 (4-inch) rounds on each of 2 parchment- or foil-covered baking sheets. Use large spoon to make large indentation in center of each round, building up side of each round as much as possible.
  • Bake 55 min. or until meringues are dry and golden brown. Remove from oven; cool completely on baking sheets. Carefully remove meringues from parchment.
  • Cut pears into thin slices; place in large nonstick skillet. Sprinkle with cinnamon and remaining sugar; cook on medium-high heat 3 min. or until sugar is melted and pears are evenly coated with sugar syrup, stirring occasionally. Spoon into centers of meringues; drizzle with caramel topping. Top with COOL WHIP.
