Molasses Poached Pears

I know, they look like turds with ladyfingers and ice cream. You'll just have to take my word on this. If you don't like molasses, these won't change your mind-but if you do....

The ladyfingers are from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and are so absurdly simple to make it seems absurd to every buy them from a store. The ice cream is a stirred ice cream made in a freezer tray. All very easy to prepare. I gave it all a drizzle of Golden Syrup, but really, that was more for appearance than anything else. See, now it looks like the turd went wee on the plate. Geez. You're never going to make these now, are you?

The recipe for the pears may be found HERE.

that was the funniest this that I read. How did they taste?

I never tried them, but the boys were split between enthusiastic "yea", and a shrugging, "nay."

Probably will try them again with a lighter molasses.
