Recently, my friend Sheila shared with me a really great way to use those wonderful red pears that are available this time of year. I tried it on my family and they loved it. We had them for breakfast and they were delicious. You just take a red pear and slice it in half. You scoop out the core and seeds with a small knife or melon ball scoop.
Add chopped walnuts into the hole where the core was and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Bake them in the oven on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. The walnuts roast a little and have a richer flavor than if they were added after the pears baked.
When they come out of the oven, put the pear on the plate and add two or three spoonfuls of vanilla yogurt onto the top of the warm pear. Then drizzle some honey on top.
Warm, healthy and not too sweet but sweet enough. Truly, they are delicious.
