About this recipe: Pears are peeled and drizzled with honey and butter, before being baked until tender. These baked pears can be served as a dessert and as a side dish. Enjoy!
If Bosc pears are unavailable, use conference pears instead.
Very good, but I did change it a little. I forgot to put the honey on there (will definitely do that next time), but added cinnamon, ground vanilla, and brown sugar. I also just cut them in half and put a pat of butter in the hole of each pear. Served with homemade vanilla bean whipped cream! Delish! - 10 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
OK loved this... I made my own lil creation. I did the pear like it stated melted 2 sticks of butter 1/2 cup of brown sugar and lil bit of white and a lil bit of real vanilla heated it up in the microwave. I used 12 pears I picked from the orchard yesterday each pear got 2 big spoon fills over each. put in the oven at 350 for 1/2 hr. Basted each with it's own sauce then mixed some fresh raspberries with some water and sugar in the blender and each got 2 spoon fills back in the oven for 30-45 min. OMG, this was such a hit the whole apartment was like what's that and everyone wanted some, but my biggest person to please is my 13 yr old child. HE LOVED IT ate 3 big pears, once it was cut up.... - 31 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is tasty, but I altered it substantially. I combined honey, white wine, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and a black tea bag and cooked until wine reduced. The added flavor of black tea gives a nice herbal quality to the dish. - 25 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
