Baked Holiday Pears

Ingredients

4 pears, such as bosc, bartlett or anjou

24 fresh cranberries

4 tbps chopped pecans

¼ tsp ground cinnamon, plus more, if needed

¼ tsp ground nutmeg, plus more, if needed.

4 tsp raw honey

Greek yogurt for pairing, if desired

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  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.
  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 ½ tbsp of the pecans and then sprinkle each pear half with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Drizzle each pear half with ½ tsp of honey. I did this by squeezing the honey into a ½ tsp measuring spoon and then drizzling over each pear half.
  4. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until the pears are tender.
  5. Serve with Greek yogurt, if desired.
