Easy Poached Pears with Raspberry Sauce

Submitted by: CIOUID

Introduction

You can sweeten this with honey or sugar if you want, but I like it just the way it is. Each serving is 1/2 a pear with about 1 tablespoon sauce and 1 tablespoon Cool Whip.

Ingredients

    3 medium pears
    1 cup Tropicana orange juice
    1/2 cup water
    1 Cinnamon stick
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 cup frozen raspberries
    6 tbsp Cool Whip (regular)

Directions

Peel the pears, then cut them in half and remove the core with a melon baller. Remove the stem with a knife.

In a nonstick pot, combine the juice, water, cinnamon stick and vanilla and bring to a simmer over medium high heat. Add the pears and reduce the heat to medium. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes until pears are tender (stick a knife in them). Remove the pears with a slotted spoon and set aside. Remove and discard cinnamon stick.

Add the frozen raspberries to the pot and continue to simmer until the sauce has reduced to a syrup. Add the pears back just to coat then transfer to serving plates. Top each pear with 1 tablespoon sauce and a dollop of Cool Whip.
