Baked Pears with Dried Cherries and Pecans

I feel like pears have to take a back seat to pumpkins and apples this time of year. Why is such a delicious fruit overlooked so often? My best friend has 2 cute pear trees that she planted last year and was lucky enough to have them produce rather large pears this year. I'm a little jelly since my fruit trees always take 3-5 years before I see any kind of yield. Since she still hasn't planned what exactly she wanted to use her bounty for, I thought I'd throw out this simple, yet sophisticated Baked Pears with Dried Cherries and Pecans recipe for her to get a little inspiration from this week. 
 

This fall treat is best fresh out of the oven while the filling is nice and warm and the fruit is easy to slide your fork through. It's a lovely dessert fit for any fall occasion, but I think it would make a beautiful addition to your Thanksgiving menu this year (I really can't believe we're already talking Thanksgiving!) For an extra bit of fall flair, pair it with a hot cup of your favorite apple cider. My bestie mentioned that she wasn't aware of how many pear recipes there were, but if you've been a follower here for some time, you know I've featured several amazing Golden Blossom Honey recipes that include pears, my favorite being this Honey Almond Pear Tart. You can find a quick rundown of those recipes by searching pear in the search bar in the sidebar to the right. Don't overlook pears this autumn in favor of the more popular options. You'll be sorry if you let the season pass you by without indulging in at least one pear recipe!

Do you eat pears or prefer pumpkin and apple in the fall?

  1. I have had some delicious pears this year!! Just ate one last night. But you’re right, we don’t often use them in recipes like we do with apples and pumpkins. If I had to pick what to eat plain, it would be a ripe pear, but to bake with, I think I like pumpkin desserts the best.

    1. Apple desserts are my favorite in the fall, but pumpkin is a close second. I do love me some pear desserts here and there too, but I really need to up my recipe game with them.

  2. Such a lovely combination of ingredients indeed! I do love pears, especially their smell, but since they sometimes give me tummyache I do prefer them in juice, fragrances, candy etc. I had that pear fig tea last year, I think I sent you a few bags, but I'd much preferred if it was just pear without the fig.

    Here in my country pears are usually made into a pear brandy called vilyamovka. We are a nation of drunkards and make brandy out of anything plums (famous slivovitza), apricots, cherries, quinces, pears, you name it.

    1. The pear tea was the first one I drank, if memory serves me correct. You sent a full box and it was delish! I'd probably like the pear fig too though, but I love figs.

      So, do you beat the Irish in terms of drunkness? :)

  3. I like pears better than apples, but I prefer pumpkin in dessert. Pears are delicious and I like their consistency better than the crispiness of an apple. That being said, after I eat one I look like I'm a few month pregnant from the bloating. LOL

    1. Ooh, I didn't realize pears cause bloat. I like the texture of apples better, but I like the skin of the pears better than apples.

  4. Looks great! I love it. Ingredients are very rich and healthy. I am not sure whether use quince instead of the pears or not.

  7. Always went toward apples. But we did have pear trees that sprouted some big ones too.

  8. I love pears but I hardly ever eat/buy them. So weird now that I think about it. I buy apples all of the time, and I like them, but I like pears better! This sounds awesome for a holiday meal too. It's fancy but still comfy/homey. :)

    1. Jason's more the pear buyer in our house. I tend to forget about them too, but he's always loading up on fruit and pears are one of his favorites.
