Expert Tips

  • These rosy red pears are the perfect ending to any holiday meal, and they're not laden with fat and calories. For a special touch, dust dessert plates with powdered sugar before serving. Serve pears with low-fat vanilla ice cream, and garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves. Do your pesky pears keep falling over?. Try this trick: Cut a very thin slice from the bottom of each pear to make a flat surface and they won't topple over on the serving plates again!
