Harvest time grows nearer and this is the perfect recipe for using up those pears that are ripening on the trees.
This is NOT a low fat dessert but can certainly be made lighter by using less sugar and fat free sour cream.

Ingredients

How to Make Baked Pears with Caramel Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place butter in a baking pan large enough to hold the pears in a single layer: set in the heating oven until it melts.

    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.
  2. Top each pear with a generous spoonful of sour cream, caramel sauce from the pan and toasted pecans.
