I like pears anytime of year, but there is something about this time of year, that I really enjoy a good pear recipe. This one will make you want to curl up on the coach with a good book with the warmth of the fire warming your house. 

I love cooking fruit with cinnamon and brown sugar, it seems to warm me from the inside out! This recipe is definitely one of those recipes for a cold fall or winter day. 


Caramelized Pears: 
  • 2 Medium sized Bartlett Pears cut in half with seeds spooned out
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon per pear Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon water
Cinnamon Ice Cream:
  • 1/2 Gallon Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon

Caramelized Pears:
In a large skillet, melt butter on medium high heat, then add pears cut side down. Cook for 4 minutes. Turn pears over and sprinkle brown sugar on top. Turn temperature down to medium and add water to skillet and let the brown sugar melt into the water - making sure to swirl these ingredients so they don't burn. As the brown sugar and water melt together, carefully spoon this liquid over the tops of the pears. Cook for additional 4 minutes. Remove for heat. Place one pear on dessert plate and pour a small amount of brown sugar mixture onto plate. Add cinnamon ice cream. 

Cinnamon Ice Cream:
In a large bowl spoon out the entire contents of the ice cream, add the ground cinnamon and mix together. Place ice cream into freezer for 15 minutes to harden. Once it has hardened, scoop out into bowl next to caramelized pear.
