Simply Pears TNT

Simple pears have simple elegant flavors and we love them. Preheat oven to 350.Place 3 large pears that have been halved and cored in a buttered baking dish cavity side up, Cream together 2 tab. butter,1/8 tea. almond extract,1/4 cup finely chopped almonds.Place a dollop of this mixture in the cavity of each pear. pour cream sherry over each pear and bake for 30 min. Best served warm but room temp works also.
enjoy

Quick question!
I was in my local grocery store and the only thing they had in the way of sherry was Sherry Wine for cooking, is that the same thing? It didn't say weather it was cream or dry, etc...

NO, NO, NO - back away from anything with the words "cooking wine" on the label. It's definitely NOT for cooking, not for drinking - in fact, it's not even wine. Absolutely AWFUL stuff that should be outlawed - full of additives & high in sodium.

Dry sherry for cooking purposes is very inexpensive (I pay around $5-$6/bottle) & lasts forever in your pantry. There's no reason to buy God-awful imitation stuff that will ruin your food.

Breezy is right on, a cream sherry is lovely and can be used in many things, go for that the other is like taking salt lick from a herd of cows.

Although it's a matter of personal taste, I rarely use cream sherry, & then only for certain dessert recipes. Dry sherry, on the other hand, is definitely a staple for me, as I use it frequently in so many Chinese dishes.

O.K. So I'll just look for Cream Sherry and avoid the cooking sherry! Thank you!

I'm not sure about Florida, but in Pennsylvania and Delaware you can't buy real sherry at the grocery store. You've got to pick it up at the liquor store instead since it's a fortified wine.

Back in NY you couldn't buy any wine in grocery stores - everything alcoholic except beer & wine coolers was (& I believe still is) sold in liquor stores.

Here in VA, supermarkets (& even little places like 7-11) sell wine (including sherry). In fact, the wine section of the local Wegmans takes up nearly 1/8-1/4 of the entire store! However, brandy & the hard stuff is only sold in government-controlled liquor stores.

Now when I visited relatives in Illinois, all the supermarkets had full liquor stores (including wine) inside the store, but they were contained in a separate glassed-in room, separate register, & a locking door since they had separate hours from the rest of the store.
