Caramelized Pears

This pear recipe with a homemade pan caramel sauce is to die for! Salty, sweet and juicy all at the same time.


3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 pears, cored           
1/4 c. brown sugar   
1 tsp. vanilla
Pinch of salt

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high. Add pears cut side down and cook for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and cook 3 minutes. Turn pears to other side and cook 4 minutes.

Add sugar and 1 tablespoon water, moving the pears around in the pan to combine the ingredients. Turn pears skin side down again and cook for two more minutes. Stir in vanilla and pinch of salt. Serve warm with light Cool Whip (or if you are a whipped cream fan).
