Baked Pears With Brandy Sauce
Beginning each breakfast with fruit is customary at Farmers Guest House in Galena, Illinois. However, it can be a challenge in February when the only fruits in season are pears, apples and lemons. This recipe was inspired by the winter season in the Northern Midwest. On a beautiful, snowy morning in the cold of the winter, a warm fruit dish is a perfect start to a wonderful breakfast at the B&B -- or at your own home. This is a delicious way to use tasty, fresh pears and the bit ‘o brandy is a fine wake-up call before embarking on the variety of winter sports offerings in the area. Served warm with ice cream, it makes for an excellent dessert option while snuggling up near your fireplace.
