Ingredients

4 each pears
ripe, with stems, washed and pat dry
2 cups white wine
fruity style
*
4 tablespoons honey
4 each cinnamon sticks
*
4 each bay leaves
*
4 strips orange zest
*

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each pear, so they will stand upright.

Arrange the pears in a 9- to 10-inch baking dish.

Whisk wine and honey in a medium bowl until well blended, pour over the pears.

Place cinnamon sticks, bay leaves and orange zest to the wine mixture around the pears.

Roast the pears, basting every 15 minutes, until they are wrinkled and tender, 50 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the type of pear used.

Use a slotted spoon to transfer the pears to shallow dessert bowls.

Transfer the wine mixture into a small saucepan, bring to a boil.

Boil until slightly thickened, 5 to 8 minutes.

Drizzle on top of the pears and garnish with the cinnamon sticks, bay leaves and orange zest.

Serve warm, at room temperature or cold with ice cream, frozen yogurt or whipped topping, whipping cream if desired.
