Cinnamon Baked Pears

I’ve made cinnamon apples lots and lots of times.  They make a great side dish, especially during the months of fall.  This was my first time to make cinnamon pears, and I gotta say, I think I stumbled onto something great!  In fact, my husband and I prefer the pears to the apples.

These can be made with either canned of fresh pears.  I used canned because I thought they’d be a little softer.  They were reeeeally good, but I was disappointed that I didn’t get more!  The can had several that were broken and not complete halves.  So you have a little more control over how they look if they’re fresh and you cut them yourself.

These were the perfect side dish for my Honey Garlic Pork Chops!

  1. I made these tonight. So yummy! I didn’t have enough brown sugar so I had to make my own with white sugar and molasses. Thanks I had some pears that needed to be eaten.

  3. This recipe for baked pears was delicious. I switched it up a little by using allspice instead of cinnamon. They were really good. I am saving several for my work lunches this week as I am the only one who likes pears. 🙂

  4. Do you think I could swap the brown sugar for maple syrup? would I need to adjust the butter or something if so? I prefer maple syrup to refined sugar, but I like your idea!
