1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Pinch kosher salt

2 pears, stemmed, cored, and sliced lengthwise 1/2 inch thick

Ice cream

Pecans, for topping

  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. In a small saucepan add butter, brown sugar, apple cider, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Place onto grill until butter melts. Mix together until well combined.
  3. Place pears directly onto grill for 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and cook on the other side. Brush both sides of the pears with the butter mixture to glaze. Immediately take pears off the grill after glazing and place on a plate.
