Baked Pears with Pecan Crumble

Before going vegan I had never really thought of baking or grilling fruit. It sounds kind of odd really, but honestly it is one of the most delicious things!

These baked pears are super light; the perfect dessert for summer! Not only are they warm and comforting, but they also are packed with freshness from the pear and paired with a delicious scoop of ice cream are sure to impress anyone.

Plus, baked pears just sounds fancy. We’ll tell you a secret though, these delicious babies are probably the easiest and least fancy things ever. You don’t have to tell your guests that though.

Baked Pears with Pecan Crumble

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 pears
  • 1/3 cup pecans
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch cloves
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup Brickwork’s Stockyard Pear Cider

For drizzle (optional): 1 cup icing sugar + 1 tbsp Pear Cider

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Finely chop your pecans and add to a small bowl, along with your rolled oats, maple syrup, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix until the maple syrup has coated everything.
  3. Slice your pears in half, vertically, and with a spoon or a cookie scoop, scoop out the centre of your pears. You should only scoop out about 1 tbsp worth of pear as you do not want the sides of your pear too thin.
  4. Place your pears on a lined baking sheet and add a heaping scoop of the oat mixture into each of the pears. It is okay if it is overflowing, it looks better this way.
  5. Drizzle about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of your pear cider onto each pear.
  6. Bake your pears for 25 minutes or until tender. Every 5-10 minutes you are going to want to drizzle a tiny bit more cider onto each pear to keep the moisture, especially if your pears are not ripe.
  7. While they are baking you can make a simple drizzle for them by combining your icing sugar with 1 tbsp of cider.

Bonus Drink Recipe: 1 can Stockyards Pear Cider + 2-3 shots of coconut rum + 2 tbsp coconut milk + 1 tsp vanilla extract (Makes 2 drinks)
