Heat a saute pan over a medium-high flame and melt the butter until it begins to bubble.
Add the pears and gently saute until they start to brown and begin to soften.
Pour over the honey, and gently turn the pears so that they get coated on all sides. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
Whip the double cream with the icing sugar and drop of cardamom extract until it forms soft peaks.
Spoon the honey-glazed pears into the bottom of a serving dish and top with a spoonful of cardamom cream. Drizzle any remaining liquid from the pan over the top, if desired. Serve immediately while the pears are still warm.
