South Beach Diet Ginger Pears Recipe

There are only 110 calories per serving in this tasty recipe from the best-selling South Beach Diet, and we think you’ll love the autumn flavor of these baked pears with their crunchy ginger topping.

INGREDIENTS
4 medium pears, peeled, halved, and cored
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup finely crushed gingersnaps
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the pear halves, cut side up, in a 12” x 7” x 2” baking dish. Drizzle the orange juice over the pears. In a small bowl, combine the gingersnaps, walnuts, and the margarine or butter. Sprinkle over the pears. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the fruit is tender.

Serves 8.
