      I had high hopes for this was quite easy, and looked pretty fancy, but I just didn't like them much...I'd like to hear others reviews on this...The alcohol in the ouzo didn't really burn off, and left a bitter flavor. I used really wonderful Comice Pears and somehow they were less sweet after cooking, even with the added sugar. Just not sure about this one...

      Was delish! The only problem was the puff pastry was not enough. I do suggest using a square of the pastry and bring it up and around the pear so it is completely enclosed. Following the directions above the 2 strips which I rolled out left pear showing. I did add the butter to the filling as that was not in the directions?! My DH got to the center expecting seeds and found raisins! A nice surprise for all! I am rating this 5 stars because it is really good and would have given it 10 stars. Just take note of the butter and do use more puff pastry. ;)!
