Baked Pears Recipe

My favorite way to enjoy fall fruit is baked, sometimes with a little yogurt, or a little ice cream for dessert, much like I do with these delicious baked apples. Here, I baked the pears with cinnamon, honey and walnuts – it doesn’t get simpler that this!

I had some beautiful ripe Royal Riviera pears on my counter from Harry & David and didn’t want to waste them, so I cut them in half, cored them and baked them in the oven this morning. While they baked my kitchen smelled heavenly! They turned out even better than I hoped – I had one for breakfast with a little yogurt, but this would also make a wonderful dessert.

What are the best pears for baking?

I love Royal Riviera, Bosc and Anjou for baking for the best texture and taste.

  1. This recipe is a keeper! Used Red Bartlett pears and also added a dollop of butter on each pear half and just a few  flakes of  finishing sea salt.  Excellent! Thanks!

  2. Unbelievably delicious! I had it with Oikos Triple Zero yogurt for an additional 1 point.

  3. Easy recipe, yummy result. 
    I used conference pears , and maple syrup as I didn’t have honey

  4. So yummy and delicious! I made the recipe as directed but I sprinkled a little wheat germ on the pears as well…just to add extra nutrition. And I served it with plain Greek yogurt.

  5. nice quick use of pears! easy ingredients. YUMMY!

  6. This is a lovely recipe. Easy to put together. I used Asian pears and baked them longer. It’s a delicious treat at any time and it is healthy too.

  7. Yesterday I bought real Prussian pears in Königsberg,which were planted in Prussia even before the annexation of Prussia by the USSR.The pears were not sweet,I baked them in the oven-the taste of pears changed for the better,they became sweet and tasty, very tasty with coffee.

  8. YUM!! Had some pears that wouldn’t ripen, but that I didn’t want to waste. Tried this recipe, just adding some baking time to soften up the pears as they were starting out hard as rocks. Success! Everyone loved them, and I felt good about not wasting my purchase.

  9. This is good! Added a bit of oil, and baked it for 45 min. 

  10. I’m not seeing what temperature to bake at. 

  11. A great dessert, or a salad, Nice on bed of greens too, ( like in Fast and Slow book) I think this feels like a holiday dessert. Everyone likes these.

  12. Found this recipe when looking for a way to use up some of the exact same pears from Harry & David!  Each one is big enough to feed all four of us, so we needed to find a way to use them up. I made the recipe as is, and then added a drizzle of maple syrup over them just before serving them. They were a big hit – soft and delicious.  Will make again!

  13. I love this dessert. I actually make this almost every night. I pile some blackberries or blueberries on top of the pear half before baking and save the honey for when it’s done. So yummy! A little serving of vanilla no sugar added ice cream on the side and it is just to die for! Even eating this every night for dessert, my husband has lost 22 pounds and I’ve lost 19 pounds in a little over 2 months.

  14. This is my favorite dessert now!!!! I make it twice a week.  I also add a tiny drizzle of maple too.  Yummmmmm!  Great recipe.

  15. Excellent and easy recipe.  I used organic Bartlett pears and served them as a dessert with a slice of soft-ripened goat cheese on the side.  All my guest raved about them.

  16. This is a FANTASTIC recipe.  Nothing better for a light dessert!

  17. Can this be made ahead? Would love if you reply soon. Want to try and make it tonight for tomorrow

  18. Just made these and they are delicious! Such an easy recipe and so tasty 

  19. These were amazing. Served with a little vanilla Greek yogurt. So simple and delicious.
