Grilled Pears! Oh these are yummy! Try them as is or with some whipped cream, a drizzle of honey, a la mode the possibilities are endless! Add whatever special touch you like! I have tried these as they are with a garnish of fresh chopped mint and that was excellent too! Grill them on on the top rack while you are making the main dish in the bottom or add them to the grill after removing the main dish and cook while you are eating.
- 2 large pears
- 1⁄2 cup white wine, use your favorite
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick (about 2 inches)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- honey (optional)
- ice cream (optional)
- toasted nuts (optional)
- whipped cream (optional)
- mint (optional)
- Spray a grill safe baking dish with cooking spray.
- Cut pears in half from the top and remove seed.
- Place face down in baking dish and cover with remaining ingredients.
- Cover and place on preheated grill for about 15 minutes.
Mmmmmmmmmm...so good! I made this in my convection oven. The pears were so soft and sweet they just melted in my mouth. I served these with a scoop of old-fashioned vanilla ice cream on the side. I drizzled caramel sauce over the pears and the ice cream, topped it off with some whipped cream and then sprinkled a little cinnamon over everything. A very elegant dessert that is going straight into my keeper file. Thanks for sharing, mama! Made for January, 2009 Bevy Tag.
I made these in the oven as it is far to cold to grill. They still came out fabulous! I offered whipped cream but no one wanted it. They said it was good by itself.
