Honey-Roasted Pears with Sweet Yogurt Cream

Randy Mayor; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell

Pears for roasting are best if they're a little on the firm side. Because the skins take on a beautiful deep-amber glaze when roasted, we left them on. The yogurt in the Sweet Yogurt Cream drains for 24 hours, so start it the day ahead.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 4 pear quarters, 2 tablespoons basting liquid, and 2 tablespoons sweet yogurt cream)
