  • 13"x9" Baking Dish
  • Foil


  • 4 Pears Bosc, Bartlette, D'Anjou
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Cup Water


  • Preheat your oven to 350°.
  • Wash fruit and cut into halves. Then use a spoon to take out the core.
  • Lay pear halves in a baking dish with the skin side down.
  • Divide butter into equal portions and place a portion on top of each half.
  • Mix together cinnamon and sugar. Then sprinkle over the top of the pears.
  • Next add a cup of water to the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Then cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Cook for 10 more minutes with the cover off


  • When coring pears be sure to remove the circular area that holds the seeds at the base of the pear as well as the vein that runs to the top. You should be able to core a ripe pear with a teaspoon.
  • Choose fruit that is firm and unblemished.
  • Serve warm with Vanilla Ice Cream and a drizzle of the syrup from the bottom of the baking dish.
