DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a glass baking dish, place one bartlett pear half, well drained from a tin, for each serving-- place with the cavity up.
  • For each pear half, place one tbsp mincemeat (use a good quality product) in a small mixing bowl and add 1/2 tsp brandy for each tbsp of mincemeat; you don't have to use the brandy, though, if you don't want to, or you can substitute another spirit for the brandy (try Grand Marnier, or port).
  • Stir brandy and mincemeat together, then place one tbsp into the cavity in each pear half.
  • Bake pears for 20 minutes; serve warm, with lots of freshly whipped cream (if your waistline can take it).
