1/4 cup dried apricots, finely chopped
1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/4 cup butter, softened, divided
2 8 oz pears, firm, ripe
1/4 cup maple syrup
vanilla frozen yogurt, (if desired)




Combine apricots and pecans in small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon butter; use a fork to combine. Set aside. Cut pears in half lengthwise. Using a melon baller or small spoon, remove core from each pear half, leaving a 1 1/2-inch diameter hole. Cut a thin slice from bottom of each to make a steady base. Place pears with narrow ends towards center in 9-inch square microwave-safe baking dish. Fill each pear with apricot mixture; set aside. Place maple syrup and remaining 3 tablespoons butter in 2-cup microwave-safe glass measure.
Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir to combine. Pour over pears; cover loosely with waxed paper. Microwave on HIGH about 6 minutes or until pears are tender, basting pears with sauce halfway through cooking time. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve warm with yogurt.

Note: Recipe was tested in 625-watt microwave oven. If your microwave has a lower wattage, cooking times may need to be increased; if it has a higher wattage, cooking times may need to be decreased. Use the cooking times as a guideline and check for doneness before adding more time.
