Okay, this may seem super easy and it is! The best part it's a fresh and healthy way to eat a pear and have it taste like one of those BIG calorie desserts! Make sure to cook in a stainless steel pan to avoid toxic chemicals from leaching into your foods

Ingredients:
  • as many pears as you'd like
  • honey
  • cinnamon
Directions:
  1. Prehead over to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut each pear in half lenghtwise and remove seeds.
  3. Place pears on a stainless steel pan with the skin side on the pan.
  4. Drizzle pears with honey (any amount you'd like...but not too much, you will add more later.
  5. Bake pears for 20 minutes. Remove pears from oven and drizzle some more honey on them.
  6. Bake pears for an additional 15 minutes.
  7. Serve and enjoy your healthy dessert!

PS- my dad, the dessert lover, LOVED these! He couldn't believe how healthy they were, and I loved how easy they were to make.

I've done something similar with apples, but never thought of pears. Sounds great!
