Riesling Baked Pears
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.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
Tip: Scrub the orange first--and if it's an organic orange, so much the better--then use a vegetable peeler to remove strips of orange zest, leaving behind any of the bitter white pith.
