PEARS BAKED IN CREAM from Martha Stewart

a favorite from Martha Stewart's QUICK COOK

This has become a favorite dessert amongst family and friends.
It can be done at the last minute with very little prep time and the ingredient list is minimal, but the results are over the top!
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
2 tablespoons sugar
2 Bosc or Bartlett peaars, unpeeled,
   halved and cored
1/2 cup heavy cream

1.  Preheat oven to 400°.  Butter a shallow baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter and sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar and dot with butter.
2.  Put the pears, cut side down, in the dish.  Sprinkle with remaining sugar and dot with butter.
3.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Pour the cream over the pears and return to the oven for 20 minutes more.   Serve warm.

I have substituted plums and peaches with equally tastey results.

I served it in my crystal compotes at this tea
