Baked Pears

 

I opted for a super easy, super quick desert. Who doesn’t love desert? Especially if it is hot out of the oven and not too bad for you?

Enter, baked pears.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pears, halved and cored.
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs regular sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • dash nutmeg
  • Preserves

Directions

  1. Take a couple of pears. Cut them in half and core them. You can peel them if you’d like. I was too lazy too. Place them on a baking sheet. Line with foil if you don’t like scrubbing dishes.
  2. Sprinkle with some lemon juice to keep from browning.
  3. Throw a bit of butter in the hollow of each one.
  4. Mix brown sugar, regular sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and sprinkle over tops of pears
  5. Put a bit of preserves in the hollow of each. I used pear butter because I had it on hand, but you could use strawberry, marmalade, whatever sounds good!
  6. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until tender.
  7. Serve warm or cold.

These were super yummy! We just ate them as is, but they would be great with ice cream when warm, or if you cool them, with a dollop of whipped cream. So yummy!
