- 1 Anjou pear, ripe but firm
- 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
- 1 tablespoon chopped toasted walnuts
- 1 teaspoon crumbled goat cheese
- 1⁄4 cup apple cider
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- Peal the pear and slice it in half lengthwise. With a small spoon, scoop out the core and seeds, leaving an indentation for the stuffing. Place the pears in a baking dish.
- In a small bowl, mix together the dried cranberries, walnuts, and coat cheese. Divide evenly among the pear halves, mounding it on top of the indentation.
- Whisk together the apple cider and maple syrup. Pour over and around the pears.
- Bake for 30 minutes, occasionally basing the pears with the cider mixture. Serve warm or at room temperature on a bed of greens, dressed with the cider mixture.
Delicious! These are so easy and yummy. I served as suggest on baby greens as a salad which made a wonderful lunch. DH suggested serving in a bowl with either a cookie or a scoop of ice cream and calling it dessert. I can see that as it is very sweet. Made as written and would not change a thing. Thanks for the post.
