This is from my sister-in-law Cherisse.
6 ripe pears, peeled, cut in half and cored
1/2 C orange juice
1 C brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Combine juice, sugar and spice and put in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Place pears on top with cut side facing up. Dot with butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve with ice cream.
Cherisse likes to double the sauce and then after the pears are done baking boil the sauce in a pot until it reduces down. I didn't have time for this but I'm sure it would be yummy.
