These pears are SO delicious and very easy to put together. Great with vanilla ice cream. We enjoyed them so much, I made them 2 nights in a row. Derf, thanks for sharing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Peel, if you wish (I leave them unpeeled) Slice pear in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds to make a nice circle. Spray with veggies spray and set aside in a gratin dish sprayed with veggie spray, cut side up.
  3. In a small bowl mix together, cream cheese, salt, nutmeg and 1 teaspoon honey. Fill each pear half cavity with half of the cheese mixture.
  4. Place a half walnut on top of the cheese mixture; lightly press it down. Drizzle pear halves with remaining teaspoon of honey.
  5. On centre grate in oven, roast at 350°F for about 1 hour or until soft. Test with a toothpick at about 45 minutes.
