Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°; peel pears and halve them vertically; with a melon baller or small spoon, scoop out the hard core of each.
  2. Melt butter in an 8- to 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat.
  3. Stir in the brown sugar and salt; add in the pears in a single layer, cut sides down.
  4. Spoon some of the butter mixture over the pears.
  5. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the pears until soft, 15-20 minutes, basting once with the butter mixture while they bake.
  6. Remove the pears from the skillet and arrange them on a rimmed platter or in a large shallow bowl.
  7. Return the skillet to the stovetop; mix in the cream, vanilla, and bourbon; bring to a boil and reduce by about half, until very thick, stirring and keeping a close eye on the mixture.
  8. Pour the sauce over the pears; Garnish with nuts and serve warm.
