Baked pears with Calvados and maple syrup

Recommended Posts

Baked pears with Calvados and maple syrup

Serves 6 as Dessert.

This is very tasty. Make sure that the Bosc pears

are very ripe, they won't soften in the oven.

This is a recipe that I found in the Gourmet magazine,


1 1/2 cups of pure maple syrup

6 Bosc pears with stems and skins on

3 Tablespoons of sugar

1 Tablespoon of fresh lemon juice

3 Tablespoons of Calvados

2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter, cut in pieces

1 cup chilled heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Put syrup in a shallow bowl.

3. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of pear so it sits upright

4. Dip and coat each pear in the maple syrup, and coat

well with sugar, reserving the syrup. Put in a 9 by 2

in baking dish. Stand pears upright.

5. Stir in lemon juice, 2 Tablespoons of Calvados, hey

maybe a sprinkle more, and butter into the reserved

syrup, around the pears.

6. I also add one scraping from a Tahitian vanilla bean,

it gives it added flavoring.

7. Bake pears, uncovered in middle of oven, until

TENDER, 30 minutes.

Serve: With remaining tables. of sugar and remaining

Tables. of Calvados, add to cream till it hold soft

peaks. Divide pears and syrup and serve with whipped


(Homey taste, not too rich, comforting).
