Ingredients

  • 2 ripe pears
  • 4 tablespoons pecans, roughly chopped
  • 4 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
  • 1 cup white wine, orange juice or other liquid, for roasting
  • coconut whipped cream, for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. 
  • Cut the pears in half lengthwise.  Use a melon baller or small spoon to scoop out just the seeds from the middle, leaving most of the flesh intact.  Use a paring knife to cut a small flat spot on the back of each pear, so they will sit flat in the roasting dish.  Place the pears, cut side up, snugly in an oven safe dish such as a pie plate or square cake pan.
  • Distribute the chopped pecans evenly into the cavity of each pear and then drizzle a teaspoon of maple syrup over the pecans.
  • Place the cinnamon and ginger (if using) in a small mesh strainer and dust evenly over the pears.
  • Pour the white wine or orange juice into the bottom of the baking dish, take care not to splash it on the tops of the pears.  Roast the pears for 20-25 minutes, or until very tender when pierced with a paring knife.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly for 10 minutes.  Serve on individual plates with a dollop of coconut whipped cream.  ENJOY!
