Baked Pears with Honey, Cranberries and Pecans Recipe


  • 4 pears
  • 1-2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 8 tbsp chopped pecans
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, plus more, if needed
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, plus more, if needed.
  • 4 tsp honey
  • Greek yogurt for pairing, if desired


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 cranberries into the cored part of each pear half. Sprinkle each pear half with about 1 tbsp of the pecans and then sprinkle each pear half with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Drizzle each pear half with 1/2 tsp honey. 

Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until the pears are tender.

Serve with Greek yogurt, if desired.
