Poached Pears with Ginger Snaps
From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at www.dorothymcnett.com.
3-4 firm, but ripe, pears, peeled and cut
Peel and slice the pears, removing the cores. Place in a glass or ceramic bowl, add the syrup, nutmeg, and lemon zest plus about 1 teaspoon of the juice. Cover with a glass or ceramic plate. Microwave on high, using 2 minutes per pear as a guide. Pears should be tender but firm when done. Serve in a beautiful footed glass along with the cookies on the side.
