  • Peel the pear, ensuring to maintain as much of the original shape as possible. Slice the pear in half lengthwise, and scoop out the core of each half.
  • Place each half in a bowl with the water and lemon juice. In a deep frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Just as the butter has melted, place each pear half in the pan sliced side down.
  • Mix the cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg together in a small bowl. Sprinkle and rub the sugar mixture over each pear half. Drizzle the vanilla and maple extract over each pear half. Drizzle 1/4 cup of the orange juice over the pears.
  • Increase the heat to medium-high, and cook for 5 minutes. You want to make a slight reduction of the juice, sugar and butter in the pan. Just as the mixture gets bubbly, add the vodka.
