This is the best and easiest cranberry sauce ever. I’ve been waiting a year to eat it again. It comes from the now defunct Cookie Magazine (which I really kind of liked).
Here’s what it is:
4 ripe pears (any variety)
2 12-ounce bags cranberries (fresh or thawed frozen)
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup brown sugar (but I’ve used no sugar, it’s still great)
1. put pears and cranberries on sheet pan.
2. dot the fruit with butter and sprinkle it with sugar
3. roast in the oven for 45 minutes at 400 degrees, stirring once about halfway through.
Just do it.
