baked pears


warmed fruit is so comforting during the cold winter months,  this recipe comes from The Low Fat Bed and Breakfast Cookbook.

It is served and the recipe is given with permission by the innkeeper at the Rocking Horse Manor Bed and Breakfast in Louisville, Kentucky.

it is very easy to prepare and very tasty.  with the addition of nutmeg, the pears just sparkle. i followed their directions perfectly and the outcome was delicious. to make the pears:  preheat the oven to 350 degrees. prepare a baking dish with cooking spray.  peel, core and cut in half two to four pears.  arrange in the baking dish.  sprinkle the pears with cinnamon and nutmeg.


next, in a small bowl, prepare the topping.  combine 2 tablespoons soft margarine with 1/4 cup brown sugar.  mix together well and spread on the pear halves.  bake in the oven for 20 minutes and serve warm.  the pears could be topped with whipped cream or even served in a bowl with yogurt and granola.  i served one pear half on a breakfast plate with the meal.  calorie count is 74 calories per serving.
