Cut each pear half into eight slices. Put into a bowl with lemon juice and toss gently. Add melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Stir gently to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes. Spread ½ teaspoon of the softened butter on each side of each slice of pound cake. Insert one plate on its grill side and another on its griddle side on the Cuisinart® Griddler®. Select Griddle and preheat to 400°F with the unit closed. Arrange the pears in a single layer on the griddle, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook for 3 to 4 minutes longer until tender and caramelized. While the pears are cooking, arrange the pound cake on the grill and grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until browned and warm. Serve warm pears on warm grilled pound cake.
