How To Make Baked Pears

  1. Mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Slice the pears in half, also scooping out the core and stem.
  2. Add pears to a casserole dish and drizzle the sauce overtop. Place them facing down and bake until almost tender. Flip them up and bake for 5 more minutes.
  3. Scoop more sauce over top of each pear just before serving.

Serve the pears warm with vanilla ice cream or whipping cream.

Leftover pears can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. They can be reheated in the microwave or stove.

Recipe Tips
