Baked Sweet Pears

This dessert is so flavorful and easy to prepare. Great for finishing off a dinner party! your guests will be asking for more! I used organic Bosc pears.

4 pears washed, cut in half and cored (cut longwise)

vanilla extract

a couple of spoons of walnuts

1/4 to 1/2 spoon of cinnamon

a spoon of grated ginger

a couple of spoons of maple syrup

a dollop of vanilla ice cream (cow, soy or rice)

Cut pears lengthwise and core out the centers and place into a baking pan filled with 1/4 inch or so of water. In a bowl mix nuts, grated ginger, cinnamon, vanilla and maple syrup together. Spoon mixture into the cored out pears. Drizzle a little bit more of the maple syrup onto the pears. Cover the pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 min or until pears are soft but not mushy.  Serve with a scoop of ice cream.

Tip: for a sweeter treat, you can grate some chocolate onto the pears just before serving. Either dairy or vegan chocolate can be used.

Heavenly!
