5 Conference pears

260g soft brown sugar
2 tsps ground cinnamon
2 tsps Mexican vanilla essence
1 L vanilla ice cream, for serving
1) Preheat a barbecue to medium-high heat.

2) Cut pears into thick slices (4 to 5 per pear). Place slices evenly in a large pan or bowl. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Pour melted butter over pears. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla to pan and mix until pears are thoroughly coated with the mixture.

4) Place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream over the pears in each bowl. Pour butter sauce over ice cream and serve.
