Out of necessity [pears that were too ripe], I decided to make dessert tonight, a rare occurence in my house. I should have taken pictures, but I didn’t. Here is what I used:
sugar [I used Stevia for baking]
Preheat oven to 350. Cut the pears into small chunks, but in a baking dish [one pear per person]. Dot the top of the pears with butter – I used about a teaspoon per pear. Sprinkle with sugar – I covered the top. Bake for 20 minutes or until tender. Let cool for 5 minutes. Top with mascarpone cheese.
This was quick, easy, and delicious!
