Baked Pears

Baked pears, an elegant dessert with fruit's warm, sweet flavor, and the crunch of walnuts and pecans plays together like pear-fect harmony.


– 2 ripe pears, halved – ¼ C of chopped  walnuts or pecans (or a combo of both) – 3 tbsp of raisins or dried cranberries (or a combo of both) – ½ tsp of pumpkin pie spice, more for garnish – 3 tbsp of agave or maple syrup (or a combo of both), more for drizzling

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet.

In a bowl, mix together the nuts, dried fruit, pumpkin pie spice, and agave or maple syrup until well-combined.

Using a melon baller or spoon, scoop out the seeds of the pears. Add a generous scoop to each innard of the pears.

If you’d like to drizzle on a little more sweetener or powder on a bit more pumpkin pie spice, feel free. Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
