This recipe is from the Quick Cooking (LL). I'm posting it here so I don't lose it...sounds delicious!
- 1 large ripe pear, peeled and thinly sliced (or tart apple)
- 1⁄2 cup water, divided
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon raisins (optional)
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 dash ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 slices cinnamon-swirl bread, toasted (doesn't have to be 'swirl')
- ice cream (or whipped cream) (optional)
- Combine pear, 1/4 cup water, sugar and raisins, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until fruit is tender.
- Combine cornstarch and remaining water until smooth; add to fruit mixture.
- Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
- Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Serve warm over cinnamon toast. Top with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
Made the recipe without any changes, including the raisins. Sliced the pear with a mandolin using the thinnest slicing blade. Loved the aroma.
Served the sauce over sweetened cornbread (Sweet Cornbread) that I had sliced in half . Topped with a frozen yogurt sandwich cut in pieces. (Possibly not the most attractive plating -- however, the taste made up for it! It was delicious).
