The sweet-spicy taste of pears roasted in cinnamon butter goes well with the tartness of the cherries. If you are pressed for time, use store-bought caramel sauce.

1.  To make the glaze: In a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat, stir the glaze ingredients until the butter and sugar have melted.

2.  With a vegetable peeler or small knife, peel the pears, leaving the stems intact. Remove a small slice off the bottom of each pear so they can stand up easily. Working from the bottom of each pear with a melon baller, remove the core and seeds from each pear. Stand the pears upright in the skillet. Spoon some of the sauce over each pear.

3.  Place the skillet over Direct Medium heat and cook until the pears are warm and tender, 10 to 20 minutes, carefully basting with the hot liquid about every 5 minutes [be careful to hold the hot handle of the skillet with a barbecue mitt]. Using a large slotted spoon, transfer the pears to serving plates. If needed, continue to cook the liquid over Direct Medium heat until it reduces to a syrupy glaze, 5 to 10 minutes. Carefully pour the hot glaze over the pears. Serve warm.
