This was a nice light treat we enjoyed the other night. After cutting the pears in half we also cut off a sliver of pear from the bottom, so they would sit flat in the baking dish. I liked the slight salty sweet taste from the butter in combination with the orange honey mixture. Very easy to make. Thank you for sharing.
