Gr8 Baking Tip:
Each fruit, depending on its firmness and sugar content, will need a little different cooking time. Asian pears are very firm and will probably take the full 45 minutes.
Gr8 Do-Ahead Tip:
This can be prepared early in the day up through Step 9, covered, and refrigerated. Before baking be sure to bring the dish to room temperature. If the dish is cold when put in the oven, the baking time will increase.
