If you have bartlett pears, heavy cream, navel orange, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around 45 minutes.
In a 3- to 4-qt. saucepan, combine wine, orange pieces, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the cinnamon, cloves, and 2 cups water and bring to boil over high heat.
Add pears, reduce heat to a simmer, and place on top of pears to submerge them in liquid. Cook, covered, until pears are tender when pierced, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together cheese, cream, and 2 tbsp. sugar until very thick.
Serve pear halves in shallow bowls, each with about 1/4 cup of the poaching liquid and a dollop of the sweetened cheese. Save remaining liquid for another use, such as making hot spiced wine, if you like.
