Print this entry

Baked-PearsThis dessert is perfect for entertaining because you can make the sauce ahead of time. Let guests choose their own garnish by offering raisins, fresh raspberries or nuts on the side. 

Serves 6 

1 cup plain coconut cream

½ cup raw honey

2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tbsp ghee

6 medium pears, peeled, cored and halved

½ tsp ground cloves

¼ cup toasted walnuts, chopped (optional) 

Combine the chilled coconut cream with half the honey and the cinnamon in a medium bowl. Chill for at least 1 hour. 

Preheat oven to 175 °C (380 F). Melt the ghee in a pan over medium heat. Add the pear halves to the pan with the remaining honey and cloves. Stir until pears are well coated. 

Transfer the pears to a baking dish, cut-side down, and pour over with the honey from the pan and coat the pears well. Bake for 15 minutes, turning after 8–10 minutes. 

To serve, spoon pears into a small bowl and top with a dollop of honey coconut sauce. Sprinkle with walnuts, if using.
