4 ripe Bosc pears, with stems (washed and dried)
1 C sweet, fruity white wine (I used a sweet Madeira)
1/4 C honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cinnamon sticks (halved)
2 bay leaves
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut thin slice off the bottom of each pear, so they will stand upright nicely.
Place pears in a shallow baking dish or pie pan.
Whisk wine, vanilla and honey in a bowl. Pour over the pears.
Add cinnamon sticks and bay leaves around the pears.
Roast pears for about 45 minutes, basting every 15 minutes!
Carefully transfer pears to a serving dish.
Pour wine mixture into a small saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil for about 5 minutes, until thickened. Drizzle over the pears and garnish with the cinnamon sticks and bay leaves.
 I think it’s best served warm, but it would definitely be good at room temperature or even chilled.
