| September/October 2007


Sautéed Pears with Vanilla Whipped Cream
Serves 6

This fast, not-too-sweet dessert takes advantage of the abundant harvest of Anjou and Bartlett pears. Although this dish is best made just before serving, the pears can be prepared a day in advance and reheated in a skillet with a little butter. Serve the pears warm with a cool glass of late-harvest Gewürztraminer.

4 large, firm pears, such as Bartlett or Anjou
4 tablespoons butter
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon maple sugar
1/2 pint heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons maple syrup

1. Halve pears and remove core and stems. Cut into 1/4 -inch slices.



2. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add pears, lemon juice and ¼ cup maple sugar and cook about 10 minutes, stirring very gently, until pears are golden brown, liquid has reduced to a glaze and sugar has caramelized.

3. Whip cream with vanilla extract until soft peaks form.
