  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 2 cups cranberry juice

Preparation

  1. Mix cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Cut pears in half and using a spoon scoop out seeds and stem.
  3. Make a thin slice across round part of pear, so that it lays flat in baking dish.

  • Pour juice over pears before serving if desired. 
  • For people with diabetes use low calorie cranberry juice and subar substitute instead of sugar.
