These buttery-sweet and delicately nutty pears are an excellent accompaniment to pork, but also make for an easy dessert for a fall dinner party (especially spooned over ice cream). We preferred to have a little bit of firm bite remain in our pears when testing the recipe, but if you’d prefer them to be a touch softer, simply continue cooking the fruit until your desired texture is reached.
Yield: Serves 4 to 6 (serving size: about 1/2 cup)
3 firm ripe Bartlett pears, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp. salted butter
2 thyme sprigs, plus leaves for garnish
1/2 lemon (optional)
