Serves: 2 (serving size: 2 pear halves and about 1/4 cup yogurt mixture)

This quick dessert is perfect to pop in the oven just as you sit down to dinner; by the time you’re done with the meal, it’s done, too. Roasting the pears at a high temperature gives them caramelized edges and makes them soft and tender. The accompanying honeyed yogurt contains little bits of zippy-spicy crystallized ginger, a perfect complement to the sweet pears. If you happen to have any leftovers (or if you make a double batch), try a pear half and some of the yogurt on your oatmeal. You won’t be sorry!

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Step 2

Peel each pear; cut in half lengthwise. Remove cores with a melon baller or spoon.

Step 3

Combine butter and vinegar. Drizzle about half of butter mixture into the bottom of an 8-inch square glass baking dish. Arrange pear halves, cut side down, in baking dish; drizzle with remaining butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 450° until pears are tender, 15 to 18 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, combine yogurt and honey, stirring well. Stir in ginger. Arrange 2 pear halves in each of 2 small bowls; drizzle with any juices or butter mixture remaining in baking dish. Serve with yogurt mixture.
