Brown Sugar Roasted Pears

I love pears, so when I found some that were surprisingly ripe, I grabbed a few. This is a really simple dessert, and can be made in about 7 minutes, so when I have a hankering for something sweet, I tend to go towards something I can eat RIGHT NOW. 

INGREDIENTS: (two servings)

1 tbsp butter

1/2 tbsp brown sugar

Pinch of cinnamon

1 ripe pear

2 tbsp favorite yogurt

Roasted walnuts for garnish

In a skillet over medium heat, simmer the butter until bubbly and liquified. Sprinkle in the brown sugar, and pinch of cinnamon, and let crackle for just a few seconds. Slice the pear in half, and take the seeds out. Lay the pear half’s face down in the butter mixture, and push around to get the mixture ‘all up in’ the pears. Let simmer, pushing around for another 4-6 minutes. Serve with a dollop of yogurt, and sprinkle of walnuts!
