Ingredients
  Chopped dried apricot 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (chopped finely)
  Chopped pecans 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (chopped finely)
  Butter 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), softened (1/2 stick)
  Firm ripe pears 16 Ounce
  Maple syrup 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (pure)
  Vanilla yogurt/Frozen vanilla yogur 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (if desired)
Directions

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 1½-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.
