This is a sure fire hit for anyone who enjoys a dish of lovely yummy warm pear goodness! It is ridiculously easy to make and sure to impress your guests and/or family!
Baked Pears (serves 8)
4 firm pears cored & halved
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
1 cup chopped pecans
Generous sprinkle of nutmeg
1 cup of blueberries and/or blackberriesWhipped cream sweetened with vanilla extract and sugar
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
|Cut pears in half and take out the core and stem. (Don't you love my pink knife?!)
|In a 9 x 13 baking dish melt 1 stick of butter at 350 degrees.
|Very thinly slice off the "hump" of the pear so it will sit nicely in a bowl. (Don't you love my green knife?!)
|1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup chopped pecans and a healthy sprinkle of nutmeg
|After the butter melts layer the brown sugar and the pecans and sprinkle with nutmeg.
|Set your pears on top of the layers, this amount/dish can easily fit 8 pear halves.
|Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve immediately or your caramel sauce will harden.
|Set your pears in a dish and sprinkle berries of your choice and a good serving of the pecan caramel sauce, I snapped this photo just as I started to plate as I was trying to hurry. (Hungry guests!)
|Look at the bowls of wonderful warm pears, hot pecan caramel sauce and blueberries with a dollop of whipped cream. Oops! snapped this photo before the pretty sprig of mint went on top.
|Happens every time!
