Ingredients

  • 6

    firm ripe pears

  • 4

    cups water

  • 1/4

    cup lemon juice

  • 1

    cup fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries

  • 1/3

  • 2

    tablespoons sugar

  • 2

    teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

Peel pears, leaving stems intact. Cut a thin slice off one side of each pear so it will lie flat. Combine water and lemon juice in a large saucepan; bring to boiling. Add pears. Return to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10-15 minutes or until pears are tender. Drain. Place pears in a dish; cover. Chill 3 hours or overnight. Thaw raspberries, if frozen. Combine raspberries, orange juice, sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir 2 minutes more. Press through fa fine sieve; discard seeds. Cover and chill until serving time. To serve, spoon chilled raspberry sauce into 6 individual desert dishes. Place pears in sauce. Makes 6 servings. Note: If desired, garnish the dessert by piping 3 drops of vanilla yogurt on top of sauce beside each pear. Run the tip of a knife through each drop, creating a heart shape.
