Oven baked pears ~ Pera al forno

A simple dessert, breakfast or snack.

My very own recipe as follows (makes 4 servings),

2 Bosc pears

1 can Coconut milk (chilled)

a handful of toasted nut pieces of choice (almonds, pecans, walnuts, pine nuts, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds…)

honey

cinnamon

  • Bake pears on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet or rimmed baking pan for 50 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  • Separate the solid from the liquid coconut milk and whip only the solid part with a few drops of vanilla to obtain a whipped cream.
  • Cut the pears in half lengthwise.
  • Serve the warm pear halves topped with coconut whipped cream a few toasted nuts, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

I toast my nut pieces in a small cast iron pan but any pan will do. They toast very quickly.

There are many types of pears to choose from Bosc and Williams are my favorite baked.

 

Buon Appetito!
