Carmelized Pears with Toasted Almonds & Yogurt (GF)
[font="Arial, Verdana, Sans-Serif"]
Serves: 4

Not only will this taste yummy, but it is a gorgeous presentation as well. You'll impress everyone! Reprinted with permission by Public Health - Seattle & King County.

3 ripe pears scrubbed, quartered, cored and thinly sliced (or 1 can sugar-free halved pears-slice thin)
1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon unblanched almonds, sliced or 1 TBS roasted sliced Almonds
1/2 cup lowfat vanilla and sugar-free yogurt - read label for those who are GF 

1. Place a broiler rack about 3 inches from source of heat. Heat the broiler.

2. Arrange the pears in a shallow, flameproof dish in concentric circles, slightly overlapping each other. Sprinkle with the brown sugar.

3. Broil until the brown sugar has carmelized and pears begin to brown, about 5 minutes.

4. Sprinkle with the almonds and broil for about 1 minute or until almonds turn golden.

5. Serve warm, topping each serving with a dollop of vanilla yogurt. Or serve pears in a dessert dish over 4 oz of vanilla yogurt and sprinkel with the toasted almonds.
