When you’re looking for a naturally sweet treat to enjoy, baked pears are a tasty and suitable option. Requiring limited effort to prepare, you can have a delicious and healthy dessert ready to eat in less than 20 minutes.
When making this baked pears recipe, we prefer using Bosc pears. Bosc pears tend to be sweet but not as tender as, say, Bartlett pears. As a result, bosc pears fare better when they bake and don’t become mushy.
A simple dose of cinnamon and cloves adds aromatic, pleasant spice to the pears and will delight all your senses. The extra bonus is that your home will smell divine as these pears bake!
We enjoy serving these baked pears warm out of the oven with a dollop of cream or ice cream. If you want to make this recipe vegan-friendly, simply use a vegan ice cream like our no-churn recipe found here.
If you want to make this dessert for a dinner party, you could add some cream or ice cream then garnish with a sprinkle of crumbled biscuits or warm dark chocolate sauce. Talk about a divine treat!
