Raspberry-Sauced Pears

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Peel pears. If necessary, trim bottoms of pears so they stand upright. Core the pears using a melon baller or a measuring teaspoon, leaving the stems intact. Place pears in a 2-quart square baking dish.

Cover with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until pears are tender. Cool slightly. Brush pears again with some of the juices in dish.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare Raspberry Sauce. To serve, spoon sauce onto dessert plates. Place warm pears, stem ends up, on sauce. Garnish with mint sprigs. Serve warm. Makes 4 servings.

Repeat with remaining berries. In a 1-quart saucepan stir together sugar and cornstarch. Add raspberry puree. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Transfer to a bowl; cool slightly. Cover and chill leftovers for up to 1 week.
