In same bowl, add 3 large eggs at room temp and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and whisk until well blended...

Add in 1/3 cup of dark brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and whisk to blend. Set aside.

Next, evenly sprinkle top of pressed mix with chopped walnuts, approx. 3/4 cup of nuts.. Using 3 large fresh pears, peeled and sliced, place them on top of nuts.
