Drunken Pears - smells of Christmas

When I was a kid, I loved all the Christmas smells and scents coming from the kitchen! From the french toast that we would eat for breakfast to the delicious roasted chicken, not the boiled cabbages (ugh), the house smelled like cinnamon, spices, and pine. I called my mom to ask for her Drunken Pears recipe because the Holidays are coming and I want to fill my house with those smells from my childhood. Except that now I might eat the pears instead of just drinking the hot syrup, like when I was kid :D
