This is a delicious and nutritious dessert. It only takes a few minutes to prepare to boot! The cinnamon is warming and great for blood sugar and digestion. I leave the peel on the pears for extra fiber and texture. If you have difficulty with yogurt, I like to substitute with a nut butter like cashew or macadamia. For baby food, I would leave out the honey and just bake a ripe pear with a little cinnamon and orange juice. I made this for Etta and she loved it!
4 ripe Danjou pears, destemmed, cut in half and cored
4 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 Tablespoons lemon juice, fresh squeezed
½ cup orange juice
- Preheat oven to 350 ⁰ F. In a 9×13 baking dish, place pears face down.
- In a small mixing bowl combine the honey, cinnamon and lemon and orange juice and mix until evenly blended. Pour over the pears and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the pears are tender.
- Serve face up with a dollop of Greek yogurt and honey and some raw walnuts.
