Makes:

8 servings.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 pears, such as bosc, bartlett or anjou (I used bartlett)
  • 24 fresh cranberries
  • 4 tbps chopped pecans
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, plus more, if needed
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, plus more, if needed.
  • 4 tsp raw honey
  • Greek yogurt for pairing, if desired

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2

Halve the pears and then core. I cored the pears with a cookie scoop but you can use a melon baller, too. Slice a small part off of the backside of each pear half to create a flat surface so the pear sits flat when laid on the pan.

Step 3

Place the pear halves on a large baking sheet or baking pan, cored side up. Place three cranberries into the cored part of each pear half. Sprinkle each pear half with about 1/2 tbsp of the pecans and then sprinkle each pear half with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Drizzle each pear half with 1/2 tsp of honey. I did this by squeezing the honey into a 1/2 tsp measuring spoon and then drizzling over each pear half.

Step 4

Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until the pears are tender.

Step 5

Serve with Greek yogurt, if desired.
