You will need
6 – 8 ripe pears, peeled, halved and pipped
⅓ cup (80 ml) brown sugar
½ cup (125 ml) Van der Hum liqueur
We used just ripe pink Forelle pears. If you use a harder crunchy pear the baking time will be longer, on the other hand very ripe pears will need a shorter baking time. The pears are also delicious served cold.
Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 180°C.
Pack the halved pears in an ovenproof dish, rounded sides up.
Sprinkle with sugar and liqueur. Bake uncovered for 35 – 40 minutes, turn the pears over after 30 minutes. Serve warm with Lemon and Yoghurt Ice Cream, topped with Brown Bread Praline.
