Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 firm Bosc pears, peeled, halved, cored (about 1 pound)
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Arrange the pears cut side up in an 8-inch square glass baking dish. Whisk the apple juice and sugar in a small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves. Whisk in the butter. Pour the sauce over the pears. Bake until the pears are crisp-tender and beginning to brown, basting occasionally with the juices, about 35 minutes.

  • Spoon the pears onto plates. Top with ice cream. Drizzle with any juices and serve.

  • The pears can also be served frozen. To do so, cool the pears, then place them in the freezer until frozen solid, about 8 hours.
