Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Purchasing Pears
Look for pears with a fragrant aroma and coloring characteristic of their variety. Skins should be free from cuts and bruises. A ripe pear is one that feels slightly firm, but gives a bit to gentle pressure at the stem end.
Bake dessert in 9-inch square baking dish or shallow 2-L casserole instead of the 8-inch square baking dish.
