Cinnamon Baked Pears
Cinnamon Baked Pears drizzled in maple syrup are a warm addition to breakfast when combined with yogurt and granola. Baked pears (or apples) also make a great easy dessert!
Servings: 4 Servings
- 4 Pears, ripe, Bosc or Anjou*
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp butter, or coconut oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350°F
Halve the pears and scoop out the seeds and core. Place skin side down in a heatproof baking dish.
Melt butter and whisk with maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Drizzle maple syrup sauce over the pears.
Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for about 40 minutes for more ripe pears, or up to 75 minutes for less ripe pears. The syrup should be caramelized and the pears are soft but not mushy.
Allow to cool for about 5 minutes and then spoon into serving dishes.
