Baked Pears with Cinnamon Honey


• 3 medium pears

• 3 tablespoons honey

• 2 tablespoons butter (I use vegan butter.)

• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

• 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


• Preheat the oven to 400F.

• Cut the pears in half.

• With a spoon or melon baller, gently scoop out the core and seeds using a circular motion.

• Place the pears face down in a 9×13-inch glass dish or large baking sheet. (Spray dish/pan with cooking spray prior to placing the pears.)

• In a small saucepan, combine the honey, butter, cinnamon, and vanilla.

• Warm the sauce over low-medium heat, stirring until the butter is melted and ingredients are combined.

• Carefully spoon the sauce over the pears, reserving some of the sauce for later.

• Bake the pears for 30-35 minutes, until slightly soft and beginning to brown. 

• Remove from the oven and let sit for about 5 minutes before serving. 

• Spoon a small amount of the leftover sauce over the pears when serving.

Serve with vanilla ice cream, yogurt, or by themselves. Enjoy!
