Baked Pears With Ginger Sauce

  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 large, firm Bartlett pears
  • One-half cup sugar
  • One-fourth cup (one-half stick) butter
  • Hot water
  • Ginger Sauce

Directions

  • Wash the pears. Cut most of the core of each, starting from the stem end, but do not cut through the blossom end.
  • Gradually blend the sugar with the butter, and spoon into the cavities of the pears, filling them. Stand the stuffed pear in a baking dish, spacing so that they do not touch. Pour one-half inch of hot water into the dish, cover, and bake for 1 hour or until tender, basting several times with the water in the pan. Uncover 15 minutes before the baking time is up. Serve with Ginger Sauce.
