Maple Pears with Pecans


Sweetly spiced autumnal flavors come together beautifully as pears are dressed in lemon juice and maple syrup. This fruit dessert is slow roasted in the oven with pecans for a contrasting crunch. This recipe comes to us from Janet and Rachel of Life Told in Recipes.

Serves 8

  • a little cooking oil or nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 firm ripe pears, cored and sliced large
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking pan with a light layer of cooking oil or nonstick cooking spray.

Place the pear slices in a medium bowl. Drizzle with lemon juice, tossing to ensure ingredients are evenly coated.

Drizzle with the maple syrup and toss again. Add the pecans and set aside.

Pour the pear pecan mixture into the prepared baking pan. Place in the oven and roast, stirring with a spatula every 5 minutes, for 20 minutes, or until the pears are soft and fragrant.

Sprinkle with the salt, pour any juices from the pan over the pears, divide into 8 services and enjoy!
