4. Arrange pears, rounded side down, spoke fashion, in caramelized sugar. Top with a second layer of pears, rounded side up, fitting pieces over bottom layer to fill open spaces. Dot with butter. Bake, uncovered, 25 minutes, or just until caramelized sugar is melted.
5. Let stand in baking dish on wire rack until cooled to room temperature as this will take about 1-1/2 hours.

Bake pastry at 450F for 10 minutes, or until golden-brown. Let stand on cookie sheet on wire rack until ready to use.
7. Place pastry circle over pears in baking dish. Top with serving plate; invert, and remove baking dish. Mound marrons in center. Serve with whipped cream.
