A perfect fall/winter dessert and a great excuse to bust out the ice cream even if it’s chilly outside! The sauce on this is crazy delicious!

Ingredients

Rum Butter Sauce:

½ cup brown sugar
½ cup Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter
½ cup heavy whipping cream
¼ cup spiced rum
4 pears, quartered
1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter
1 quart vanilla ice cream
Fresh mint, garnish

Directions

For Rum Butter Sauce, combine ingredients in a small pot and heat over low heat until it’s bubbling. Stir continuously while sauce simmers for 5-6 minutes until sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat and let cool.

For pears, add 1 tablespoon butter to a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add pears, quartered. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side until pears are caramelized. Cook pears in batches if your skillet isn’t large enough.

Serve warm pears with a scoop of ice cream, drizzled with the rum butter sauce and garnished with fresh mint.

Rum butter sauce will store great in the fridge for a week.
