Baked Grapefruit

(1 serving)

  • 1 grapefruit (we use pink grapefruit)
  • 2 teaspoons butter or margarine
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 maraschino cherries with stems
Cut grapefruit in half. Using grapefruit knife, cut sections and loosen fruit from shell. Dot each half with 1 teaspoon of butter. Sprinkle each half with 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon over brown sugar.

Place in baking pan and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, then broil until top is bubbly. Remove from oven and place in serving bowl and put a maraschino cherry in the center.

If you've never tried it, you'll be surprised how the taste of grapefruit transforms in a wonderful way when it's baked. Enjoy!
