Ingredients

  • 2 medium pears Bartlett or Anjou cut in half.
  • 1 1/2 cups white wine such as a Riesling or Traminer { we used a bottle with a blend of the two)
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup granola
  • 10 oz. Mascarpone cheese or Greek Vanilla Yogurt

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 375 F.
  • Halve the pears lengthwise; remove core with small spoon. No need to peel them.Place pears cut side down, in shallow baking dish just large enough to hold them.
  • Pour the white wine over the pears; drizzle with the honey
  • Cover the pan loosely with foil. Bake until tender, 30-35 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in shallow baking pan, bake granola until toasted, 5-10 minutes; set aside.
  • When pears are done, pour liquid from the baking dish into a sauce pan. Cook the liquid from the pears over medium heat until it is reduced to 1/2 cup. Cool.
  • Top each pear cut side up with a dollop of mascarpone cheese or vanilla Greek yogurt. Top with toasted granola; drizzle with pear/wine liquid.
