Pears, Baked (D, KLP)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 8

4 ripe Bosc pears
1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups (390g) fat-free sugar-free KLP vanilla frozen yogurt

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C, Gas Mark 4).

Halve the pears and remove the core. Do not peel. Place the pear halves into a roasting dish, cut side down, and brush with the melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Bake until tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife, about 25 to 35 minutes. These can be baked ahead of time, refrigerated, and reheated in the microwave.

Place the hot pear halves, cut side up, on individual plates and fill the center with a 1/4-cup (60ml) scoop of frozen yogurt. Serve hot.
