Maple cinnamon baked pears are so easy to make. This warm, sweet dessert can be made with just a moment’s notice. With a quick drizzle of maple syrup and a few dashes of cinnamon, these baking pears will make your home smell like the holidays.
Bosc pears are the perfect choice for this dessert, because of their soft nature and sweet flavor. They are plentiful during the winter months and hold their shape perfectly when cooked. Even fairly ripe pears will work for this baked dish. My pears were very ripe and already pretty soft. I tried to leave the stems on when I could, but most of them fell off when I halved the pears. Just cut to one side of the stem if you want to try and keep them. Even if you only save one or two pear stems, it looks nice when they are all served together.
Once the pears are baked, you can top them with ice cream, nuts, coconut or almond whipped cream, raisins, currants, or this Tasty Pumpkin Nut Granola. Any of these toppings will taste good, but there’s something nice about the crunch of a granola or nuts with the soft pears. I used coconut whipped cream and granola on mine – they were delicious!
