    I think Rachael Ray did a couple with canned pears. Can you search the Food Network?

  • RE: Dessert using canned pears?
    I remember back when I was in High School (about 200 years ago :) ) in Home Ec, we took canned pears halves and put meringue on top of each one, and browned the maringue in oven. When we took them out of the oven, we put them on individual serving plates, then, took chocolate syrup and made thin lines of it across the top of the meringue, just a few lines.

    I've not tried this Pear Walnut Crumb Cake, but this recipe sure sounds good, and I don't see why you could not use the canned pears.
