Pears have been dirt cheap lately at our favorite grocery store and I thought it would be nice to find an easy, no bake style dessert that wouldn't heat up the house, but would offer a little sweetness and spice. These certainly fit the bill!
* 1 1/2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
* 2 Tbs white sugar
* 1/2 cinnamon stick
* 4 Bosc pears, peeled with stems
Place the pears into the simmering juice and cover. Cook until the pears are tender, turning occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes.
Once the pears have become quite tender, remove the saucepan from the heat, and set aside to cool to room temperature, be sure to turn the pears a few times throughout the cooling period, so the color will remain even.
You can cook down the remaining liquid after removing
