NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 8 ripe pears, either Anjou, Bartlett, or Comice
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 cups fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1/4 cup granola
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • In a 13 by 9-inch baking dish, combine the butter, maple syrup, brown sugar, and brandy. Peel the pears, halve lengthwise, and remove the seeds with a melon baller or teaspoon. Add the pears to the baking dish and coat with the maple mixture. Arrange the pears cut-side down, and bake until tender, about 50 minutes, basting occasionally. Meanwhile, put the cranberries in a small bowl and cover with hot water; set aside until plump. Drain and coarsely chop the cranberries.

  • Transfer the pears to plates. Pour the baking juices into a small bowl, and whisk in 1 or 2 teaspoons of water to blend into a sauce. Top each pear with a small scoop of frozen yogurt, and scatter granola and cranberries over the pears. Drizzle the syrup over the top. Serve immediately.
