Easy Baked Pears

Fall is the season for pears. Baked pears can make a beautiful, healthy dessert topped with a little ice cream or drizzled with nuts and caramel. They also make breakfast or brunch extra special! The best part is that they are incredibly quick and easy to make! They pretty much speak for themselves so I'm just going to skip the fluff and get straight to it!

You will need:
-Ripe Pears
-Sugar or honey

Start by cutting your pears in half length wise and then scoop the core out using a spoon. If your pears are ripe enough, this should be pretty easy. You can also remove the stems, but I like to leave them on because I think they look pretty.

Lightly grease an oven-safe skillet, backing sheet, or dish. I like to use my cast iron skillet, but anything will work.

Arrange the pears in the skillet and place a small piece of butter in each well left by removing the core. I usually slice a pat of butter and then cut that pat into 4 pieces and put one of those pieces into each pear. It's really not a lot of butter. Next, sprinkle a little bit of sugar (or a drizzle of honey) and cinnamon on top of each pear.

Broil the pears on the top rack for about 10 minutes or until soft and golden. Different ovens cook differently so keep an eye on them.

That's it! So easy. So fast. So good. Now go impress your friends, husband/wife, mom...whoever!

Hey Briar Rose! Thank you for your feedback! I'm so glad you like my pictures! You can definitely make these pears without the sugar for sure, but you will be missing out on the great texture it adds to the top! It only takes a tiny sprinkle so it really doesn't add too much concern, even for super anti-sugar dieters out there. And thank you for the dish suggestion! I have seen those and they're really fun! However, we really wanted a simple, clean set of classic, plain white dishes so I really researched a lot to find my set and settled on the porcelain, organic shaped dishes from West Elm and I couldn't be happier with them! We also have large wooden serving bowels that we mix in with the white dishes and it looks really nice all together. Or at least we like it!

Briar Rose: You could try Xylitol instead of sugar. Then it still has the sweetness and texture but it's healthier.

Thanks for sharing! We have a pear tree at our new home. My mom and I already canned some of the pears, but we have a lot left. We'll have to give this a try. I'm really enjoying your posts and the lovely pictures and look forward to what you will share next.
