Leftovers-Ugh, Not Again, Honey!

Two things came together for me this Christmas and what a hit. I got a cookbook called “The One Peaceful World Cookbook” and I got a box of Harry and David pears. This is my own recipe but their picture and idea, so give it a try. It fits the quick, easy, and delicious criteria!! This recipe is so easy and has so few ingredients I am almost embarrassed to share it, except that I use it so often with huge success!


Pears, apple juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, corn starch, red wine (optional)

  1. Peel and slice the number of pears you need for your number of people. I guessed at 1 pear per person and we could have had more.
  2. Simply place the sliced, peeled pears in sweet (not the unsweetened kind) apple juice and add a little cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg, and a little splash of red wine.
  3. The pears should not be completely covered by the juice as you will toss them a couple of times in the cooking process.
  4. Bake the pears at 350 until pretty soft-to your taste. Toss a few times in the process to be sure all of the slices are kept moist.
  5. Remove the pears to the dish you will use to serve then thicken the sauce with whatever you like. I use a bit of corn starch. Pour the sauce over the pears and serve either by themselves, with whipped cream, ice cream etc.  Yum, Yum

PS-This is NOT just for dessert!!
