5-6 pears (about 1 kg)
50g unsalted butter (softened)
1⅓ cup ground almonds (almond flour)
Cut each pear in half, core and leave aside in couples.
Prepare filling, using your hands mix butter and almonds till they will create soft dough. Divide dough into 5-6 pieces, depending on how many pears you have.
Fill half of each pear with almond filling, cover with another half.
From aluminium foil create boats in which pears will be baking, do not cover the top.
Place wrapped pears on a baking tray and bake in preheated oven to 180°C (356°F) for about 30 minutes.
Remove aluminium foil, place each pear on the plate, pour over maple syrup.
Make 5-6 servings.
baked fruits taste so great, right? just drizzle some brown sugar and you are all set:) your pears are asking me to use some apples this way!
Baked fruits are delicious. I love the combination of pears and maple syrup. And now you’ve added the ground almond, I can imagine all the flavours exploding in my taste buds! I like serving pear desserts (esp poached pears) for dinner parties just because they look so elegant.
yummy…what a simple, healthy & delicious idea! I’m gonna make this…happy new year margot!
They sure have an extra touch, the maple syrup. Lovely.
I’ve never had baked pears before and can just imagine how much more juicy and flavourful it must me.
I love pears and this looks so good, Margot!
This is exactly the kind of food I’m looking for this January – lots of nice fruit and veg in different styles. Great stuff!
Dear Margot, this looks so lovely and yummy!! Gloria
