More fruit fun ~ Roasted Pears with Almond Crunch
Halve 3 Bosc Pears, core out seeds and bake cut side up in buttered baking pan ( about 3 tablespoons of melted butter) at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Bake uncovered. Before placing in oven, sprinkle pears with 1/4 cup of sugar. Add 1/2 cup of water to pan for the last 10 minutes. I basted the pears twice with all the pan juice!
For the almond crunch I used one egg white. Whisk the egg white until quite foamy with three tablespoons of sugar. Add 3/4 cup of sliced almonds, preferably with skins until almonds are coated with egg wash. Spread the almonds in a thin layer on a greased baking sheet and bake until golden, about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool completely and then break into pieces. That is all there is to it........of course, I had to add some heavy whipping cream for the final touch!
