Occasionally after a satisfying dinner you want a piece of fruit. Fruit is perfect served and eaten as it is, without any embellishments. There are times, however, when you would like to serve fruit in a more sophisticated way. In the summer, I like to grill peaches, pineapples and lemon wedges. In the middle of winter, roasting pears in the oven will only serve to elevate their deliciousness. This recipe is quick, easy and low in fat and sugar – how much better can it get?!
Use firm pears of any variety. Peel, halve and core pears (one whole pear per serving). Place pear halves upside down in a casserole dish.Place in cored out center of each pear: 1/2 tsp. Butter
Sprinkle each with: 1 tsp. Brown Sugar Dash of Cinnamon
Top each pear half with 1 thin slice of lemon (this will help them to not turn brown and keep in the moistness). Roast in 425 degree oven for 20 minutes or until they test done to your liking. Remove the lemon from the top of each – use it to garnish. Serve warm with Vanilla Yogurt or a scoop of Frozen Vanilla Yogurt.
