Roasted Pears
Servings: 6 Prep 10 mins Start to Finish 45 mins


  • 6 pears
  • Juice from 1 1/2 lemons
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter or margerine
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8-x8-inch square ovenproof baking dish with butter.

2. Peel pears carefully, making long full strokes with a vegetable peeler so that the pears hold their shape. Halve the pears and use a melon baller to core them. Rub lemon juice all of pears so they do not oxidize.

3. Fit pears snugly in prepared baking dish.

4. In a small bowl, using your fingers, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and margarine until you have pea-sized crumbs. Sprinkle over pears and bake, covered with foil, for 30 minutes.

5. Using a slotted spoon, transfer pears to a serving plate. Pour cream into the hot baking dish, stirring to get up all the browned bits. Pour sauce over pears and serve.
