pearsLooking for a simple alternative to holiday pies? We’ve adapted this recipe from our friends at Tufts University. The process of roasting brings out the sweet-rich flavor of pears to make an elegant but easy dessert.


  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Bosc pears (ripe but firm)
  • 1/2 cup apple juice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a small baking pan, such as a pie pan, with cooking spray.
  2. Mix 2 Tbsp finely chopped walnuts (or pecans) and 2 Tbsp maple syrup in small bowl.
  3. Wash and dry 2 ripe but firm Bosc pears. Cut pears in half lengthwise. Remove cores with a melon baller or small spoon. Use a small sharp knife to cut a V shape around stem of cut side; remove stem. Trim the stalk at the base of each pear half.
  4. Score a zigzag pattern over cut surface of pears with tip of small sharp knife. Cut a thin slice off the rounded side of each pear half so that it sits firmly. Arrange pear halves, cut side up, in baking dish.
  5. Spoon nut mixture into hollowed-out core of each pear half. Pour 1/2 cup apple juice (or apple cider or pear nectar) into baking dish.
  6. Cover dish with foil; bake until pears are starting to become tender, 30 minutes (40 minutes if pears are very firm).
  7. Uncover and baste pears with pan juices. Bake, uncovered, basting several times, until pears are tender and glazed. If liquid is evaporating too quickly, add a little juice or water.
  8. Serve warm, drizzled with pan juices.
