Ready to Try? Here's the Recipe:
✓ 4 ripe but firm pears, halved and cored
✓ 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
✓ 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
✓ 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
✓ 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 170°c fan/190°c/375°f.
Cut each pears length ways into two halves. Using a teaspoon, scoop out the seeds to create a little cavity in the middle of each pear half before placing them in a baking dish cut side up.
In a small bowl mix the walnuts, cinnamon and 2 tbsp of maple syrup / honey until combined. Spoon the mixture into the cavities, dividing it evenly between the 4 halves.
Drizzle the pears with the remaining 1 tsp of maple syrup / honey before baking in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pears are soft and golden on the edges.
STEP 5 (Optional)
Serve the pears with a dollop of yoghurt or ice cream and a drizzle of any juices remaining in the baking dish.
