Spicy Baked Pears with Yogurt
Makes 10 servings
Notes: Arlene Moorehead serves warm baked pears to start breakfast. If making up to 1 day ahead, complete through step 2, then cover and chill; uncover to continue.
Prep and cook time: About 35 minutes
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground mace
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
5 firm-ripe pears (each 10 oz.)
1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) butter or margarine
3/4 cup orange juice
2 cups vanilla-flavor nonfat yogurt
In a 9- by 13-inch casserole, mix sugar, cinnamon, mace, and cloves and spread evenly.
Rinse pears, cut in half lengthwise, core, and stem. Lay pears, cut side down, in a single layer on sugar mixture. Dot with butter and pour orange juice evenly over fruit.
Bake in a 350° oven until sauce is bubbling and pears are hot, about 20 minutes.
Transfer pears to shallow bowls and spoon sauce over them. Top each portion with a dollop of yogurt and a dusting of nutmeg.
