  • 2 pears peeled, halved, and cored
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


Servings 4


Step 1

Heat oven to 375 degrees. To make pear fans: make 1/4-inch lengthwise slices along length of each half-pear, starting 1/3-inch from the stem end and cutting all the way down toward the rounded end.

Place butter in a 9-inch-square baking pan and melt in the oven. Add lemon juice, pepper, ginger, cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons water to butter, mix well. Place pears in the pan, rounded sides up. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake until pears are fork tender, about forty minutes; turn once halfway through baking time.

With a slotted spoon, transfer pear halves onto serving plates and carefully fan them out. Stir vanilla into sauce in pan. Place pan on stovetop and cook 1 minute to reduce slightly. Spoon sauce over pears. Serve warm or at room temperature.
