Baked Pears with Honey, Cranberries and Pecans is a super simple and healthy dessert recipe. These delicious pears are seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg for an extra boost of guilt free flavor!
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Halve the pears and then core. I cored the pears with a cookie scoop but you can use a melon baller, too. Slice a small part off of the backside of each pear half to create a flat surface so the pear sits flat when laid on the pan.
Place the pear halves on a large baking sheet or baking pan, cored side up. Place three cranberries into the cored part of each pear half. Sprinkle each pear half with about ½ tbsp of the pecans and then sprinkle each pear half with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Drizzle each pear half with ½ tsp of honey. I did this by squeezing the honey into a ½ tsp measuring spoon and then drizzling over each pear half.
Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until the pears are tender.
