Baked Pears


The sweet charm of pears: honey-baked Bartlett pears served with a fluffy Mascarpone cream, topped with pistachios and pumpkin pie spices.



  • 3 Bartlett pears
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 8 ounces heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons pistachios
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spices

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Preheat the over to 350°F.
  2. Cut the pears in half and remove pits. Place in a baking dish. Place half teaspoon of butter in the center of each pear and generously drizzle with honey (or agave). Bake for 30-35 min.
  3. With a hand mixer whip the heavy cream up until soft peaks form. Add the vanilla and the mascarpone. With a wooden spoon slowly mix everything.
  4. When the pears are baked and browned, place one half on a serving plate. Add one tablespoon (or two!) of mascarpone cream in the center and top with the pistachios, the pumpkin spices and an additional drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
