Cranberry Poached Pears
Cranberry juice and fresh cranberries add a double dose of zing to this sweet poached pear dessert. Served with a low-fat blend of yogurt and honey, it's a dessert you can make a day ahead of serving.
Tip: Instead of using a vanilla bean, you can add 1 teaspoon vanilla to the cooking liquid before letting the mixture stand and stir 1/2 teaspoon vanilla into the yogurt mixture.
To make ahead: Prepare as directed through Step 2. Place pears and the cooking liquid in an airtight container. Place yogurt mixture in another airtight container. Cover and chill for up to 24 hours. Serve as directed in Step 3.
