Riesling Baked Pears

October/November 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (63 votes)

Here's an elegant yet simple twist on the autumn classic. Pears are oven-poached in Riesling wine, which is known for its floral accents and aromas and hints of honey and pear. Serve this dessert with lightly sweetened ricotta cheese. Delicious hot, room temperature or chilled.

Beautiful, elegant, tasty dessert.

I would appreciate comments on why my sauce might not have thickened. I followed recipe exactly.

So easy and wonderful to prepare ahead.

Delicious and so easy

This recipe was great. I have nothing bad to say about it. My husband suggested it might be great to serve some sauce drizzled on angel food cake with it. YUM!

Easy, few ingredients, delicious

Microwaves destroy any nutrients the pear might have had.:) Never microwave.

This is my "go to" dessert for dinner guests - always a hit. I never peel or core the pears. I've used Reisling, crystallized ginger and honey with creme fraiche or mascarpone - port, slivered almonds and dried cherries with a drizzle of melted chocolate - whatever inspires me at the time, and they are always fantastic. Better yet, they can be made ahead and kept at room temperature. Couldn't be easier.
