1 Peel the pears and cut them in half lengthwise.
2 In a skillet large enough to hold the pear halves in a single layer, bring the sugar and water to a simmer over medium heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the pears and cover the skillet. Cook 5 to 10 minutes or until the pears are almost tender when pierced with a fork.
3 With a slotted spoon, transfer the pears to a plate. Add the Marsala to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Cook until the syrup is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cream and simmer 2 minutes more.
4 Return the pears to the skillet and baste them with the sauce. Transfer the pears to serving dishes and spoon the sauce over the top. Let cool to room temperature before serving.
