For such a sophisticated dessert, this couldn’t be easier to whip up - and even better, it can be made well in advance for the simplest dinner party treat.

Use a high quality balsamic vinegar for this recipe - it will reduce down into an absolutely delicious, rich syrup.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place a medium, oven-proof skillet over medium-low heat. Add the butter and balsamic, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon until melted. Add the cinnamon stick and turn off the heat.
  3. Place the halved pears face-down in the pan. Place the skillet in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until the balsamic appears reduced and syrupy but not burnt, and the pears are soft.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly for 10 minutes before serving with gelato or ice cream. Alternatively, bring to room temperature and store in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 3 days before heating up to serve.

    Made this recipe for Date Night, and it was just as described: easy, elegant, and make-ahead. Plus, it’s incredibly delicious. The flavor of the pears is intensified by roasting them, and it’s complemented by the balsamic. I used a high-quality balsamic, although I didn’t splurge for the Massimo Bottura one. The recipe was so good that perhaps I’ll buy the Villa Manodori one day.
