  1. 1/3 cup apple juice

Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Arrange the pears cut side up in an 8-inch square glass baking dish . Whisk the apple juice and sugar in a small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves. Whisk in the butter. Pour the sauce over the pears. Bake until the pears are crisp-tender and beginning to brown, basting occasionally with the juices, about 35 minutes.

  3. Spoon the pears onto plates. Top with ice cream . Drizzle with any juices and serve.

  4. The pears can also be served frozen. To do so, cool the pears, then place them in the freezer until frozen solid, about 8 hours.
