I am not a cook or baker or fan of pumpkin. I've never even tried a pumpkin spiced latte! Say whaaaat! Ok, please don't hate me! It's just not a flavor I get excited about. So when I want something festive to eat for this time of year I usually turn to apples, but I wanted to try something different this time around. I saw baby pears at Target and thought I'd give a go at a pear recipe!
I joined forces with my mom who truthfully is not a cook/baker either (apple doesn't fall far from the tree!), but I thought it would be fun! Two rookies in a kitchen sounds something like this:
me: can I use the same cup to measure liquid and dry food?
mom: I do!
Insert monkey covering his eyes emoji! lol
I searched for the simplest recipe I could find and then made it more simple! lol They were delicious and I'm pretty sure my mom is going to make them for the holidays too! Oh and they're vegan and gluten free!!! Wins all around!
Pears (we used baby bartlette pears because they are yummy and cute!)
Butter (use Earth's Best for vegans) 1/2 tbsp
Cinnamon 3/4 tsp
Pecans 1/4 cup finely chopped
Honey 1 tbsp as the drizzle on top
1. Preheat oven at 350. Slice pears in half, remove center, and place into deep dish bakeware
2. Mix finely crushed pecans and cinnamon in a bowel
3. Place mixture in the middle of the pears on top of the butter
4. Drizzle honey on top
5. Place pears in oven and bake for 25 min
Happy Monday and happy baking!
