Baked Pears with Caramel Sauce
This is NOT a low fat dessert but can certainly be made lighter by using less sugar and fat free sour cream.
Sprinkle sugar over melted butter, then place pears, cut side down, on top. ( Alternately, you may peel and core whole pears.) Bake until tender, about 30 minutes.
Remove pan from oven, turn pears over and baste with pan sauce. Return to oven; bake until golden and glossy, about 10 minutes longer.
