Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 firm, ripe Bartlett pears, (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled, halved, and cored (stems left intact)
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries, thawed and drained

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In an ovenproof skillet, combine butter, sugar, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. Add pears, cut side down; cover with foil. Bake, turning pears over halfway through, until tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, about 25 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Lift pear halves with a slotted spoon, allowing any juices to drip back into skillet, and divide among four serving plates. Bring liquid in skillet to a boil over medium heat. Add cream; cook until slightly thickened, 1 minute. Stir in raspberries. Spoon sauce over pears; serve.

    Where is the recipe for the Herbed Biscuits that Sarah Carey demonstrated onthe show? There are several on the recipe database and I don't know which one is the one demonstrated since I didn't record the show.
