Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cut top quarter of pears off; create a well by scooping out the core, being careful not to puncture the bottom of the pear. Arrange pears in a shallow baking dish.
  3. Drizzle maple syrup over pears. Place 1 tablespoon brown sugar and 1 tablespoon butter in each pear; sprinkle with cinnamon.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until pears are easily pierced with a fork, 35 to 50 minutes. Serve with ice cream.

This was ok, but nothing special. I used oil rather than margarine, but once I tasted the pears, I felt it didn't really need it - a spritz of oil spray would have done the trick. The maple syrup gives the pears a nice flavor, but combined with the brown sugar, it's awfully sweet.

I'm familiar with baked fruits for dessert, and am normally a HUGE advocator for butter, but the butter just sat inside the pear as it baked, and when I took it out, it splashed everywhere, and ran out all over the place when I cut it, mixing with the ice cream. The amount of cinnamon was quite a lot compared to the small amount of pear flesh that was leftover after I was done scooping out the insides, and if I made this again, I would combine all the ingredients together (after melting the butter) and then just drizzle over the pears in the dish. Maybe even cut whole pears up in slices beforehand to minimize the waste from digging through the top to get to the seeds in the center. For people not used to eating fruit, this might be a way to get them to eat it, but it's definitely not healthy nor indulgent, and the ratio of butter/sugar/spice to fruit was just way, way off for me. :(

Not being a big fan of pears I was a little skeptical that I would like these, but I did. I added extra cinnamon, because I really like cinnamon and then I took the liquid that was produced while cooking and drizzled http over the pears.
