     Aunt Jeannie's Baked Pears

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   Low-fat
Servings   2 pears = 4 servings
Preptime   45m - 1h

2 medium pears (Bartlett or D'Anjou pears)
1 1/2 cups apple juice
1 tablespoon honey
18 oz. low-fat greek yogurt plain or vanilla
1 tsp. vanilla (add to plain yogurt)
Stevia or sugar to taste
1/4 cup granola (cereal) & coconut
Cinnamon or Ginger (optional)
Garnish- Chocolate shavings or Vanilla wafer

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut pears in half lengthwise and remove core with a melon baller or small spoon. Place pears, cut side down, in a shallow baking dish just large enough to hold them. Pour apple juice over pears; drizzle with honey. Cover pan loosely with foil and bake about 35 minutes or until tender. While pears are baking, place 1/4C. granola & 1/4C. coconut (or 1/2C. of one or the other) in a shallow baking pan or pie plate and toast in oven 10 minutes; set aside.
When pears are done, pour off baking liquid from pan into a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until about 1/4 cup of syrup remains; set aside to cool.
Pour yogurt (1/2 of a large tub)into colander lined with a filter (cheese-cloth or paper towel)and allow to drain about 30 minutes. Not necessary when using greek yogurt. Mix in vanilla & sweetener of your choice. Divide yogurt into 4 shallow dessert dishes. Place warm pear half, inside up, in the center of yogurt. Top with toasted granola/coconut and drizzle with syrup. Sprinkle with cinnamon or ginger. Garnish with chocolate shavings, vanilla wafer or other to your preference.
Serving Suggestions
Omit the yogurt & serve pears over ice cream or pudding. -0) Enjoy!
